Tabula Rasa Furnishings and Décor is family owned and operated out of a small home workshop in Crosslake, MN. The business was started in July 2015 by builder extraordinaire – Colin Andrews, and is supported by his wife, Carissa Andrews.
Colin and Carissa are a hub of entrepreneurial energy, both operating their businesses from home. The couple has been married since 2012, after a whirlwind romance only the 21st century can bring; having found each other in the oddest of places – Twitter. Both share a love for writing, and stumbled upon each other while promoting their novels. (Yes, they both have books you can check out, too!)
Without Twitter – it’s unlikely the couple would have ever met, let alone started a life together. You see, Colin’s from England and Carissa’s from Central Minnesota.
Flash forward to 2015 – what started as a side adventure to supplement income and keep Colin’s creative builder satiated, eventually became his full-time passion. At many times of the day, you’ll find Colin either staining wood to the perfect color out in the garage, or down in the basement with the power tools on. Most of the time, he’s overseen by the couple’s infant son – because you’ve gotta have someone in charge, right?
Colin has been in all aspects of building and design from the large scale to the very small and everything in between. He’s worked for a number of construction companies, both in the UK and in the Brainerd Lakes Area, until settling on his own unique business.
Carissa’s the voice (in-person and on the phone) of Tabula Rasa to Colin’s brain and brawn. She’s a writer, graphic designer, marketer, and social media expert. If you email or call in, you’ll likely find her on the other end of the line.
Regardless of your furnishing needs, we know you’ll find Colin’s spectacular craftsmanship to be just what you were searching for.
