About

Burns Jennings Custom Art Furniture previously known as Cornice Furniture Works Ltd. was founded by Burns Jennings in 1999 and is located on tranquil Bowen Island, one hour from Vancouver and Whistler, British Columbia. Jennings, a graduate from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts and Environmental Studies, uses his background to design and build art quality, environmentally responsible furniture, mill work and build-ins for home and office.

Jennings carefully considers form and function and uses distinctive materials to enhance all furniture styles.  This purposeful selection of materials, some locally harvested and milled, others recycled, found or reclaimed yield beautiful, functional and environmentally superior pieces of artisan furniture.  Moreover, by using both traditional and modern joinery techniques in addition to durable finishes completed projects will endure and be enjoyed for generations.

Burns will work collabortively with clients to design artistic furniture pieces to suit their unique aesthetic.  The quality of his craftsmanship, attention to detail, pride in workmanship, and passion for solid design will be evident upon delivery.
