"Burns has created four pieces of custom art furniture for my wife and I. We are absolutely delighted with each piece. The process of designing the pieces with Burns was very satisfying and, frankly, a lot of fun. Burns and I used Facetime on our phones to setup a video link between my home in Nanaimo and Burn’s workshop on Bowen Island. Burns could see the space where the piece was going to be placed and was able to absorb and incorporate that into his design. I was able to watch the piece progress and offer feedback as if I was standing in his shop. Burns made sure that every detail was considered. The final products are a seamless blend of form and function. We have spent a considerable amount of time admiring the beautiful quality of the craftsmanship, but the really cool thing is that the rooms in which these pieces live “feel” better. I guess that is the art part. If you are looking for beautiful and organic custom art furniture created in a timely and consultative manner, Burns is the artist for you. Gotta have a Burns Jennings!"
"We are very happy with the door the Burns designed and built for the main entrance to our home. With a mix of hand crafted wood and glass design, it is a unique work of art as well as a well functioning door. It makes a huge difference to our experience of home to have such a beautiful door. Burns was receptive, reliable and creative person to work with – including our ideas in the project and also bringing his own creativity and experience. We highly recommend working with Burns Jennings."

"I had the pleasure of working with Burns on a large (8500 sq. ft.) comprehensive residential renovation project where he worked directly with interior designers, contractors, homeowners and myself as the project designer. Burns brought professionalism to every discussion and produced exceptional quality built-ins, furniture and mill work. I recently revisited the home (6 years later) and was very pleased to see that all of Cornice Furniture’s work, despite some being exposed to harsh climatic pressures is still as beautiful as the day it was built. Burns has the ability to seamlessly work with others while coordinating design furnishing that compliment the overall design vision. I look forward to any opportunity to work with burns in the future and see his involvement as an asset in all regards for supplying custom cabinetry and furniture."
