"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!"
"My name is Daniel Parke, and I am principal of Salal Architecture, a small design oriented architecture firm based on Bowen Island, near Vancouver. I have known Burns for over 3 years. I initially worked with him in the design and construction of his own house, and he has also built custom millwork and furniture in my own home.
I always enjoy working with Burns. He is a true craftsman. I meet many different trades on job sites, and Burns is one of a rare breed of highly talented craftsmen who are increasingly difficult to find. He is technically very good with wood, he understands design and aesthetics, is very detailed oriented, is very current with issues around sustainability, is very professional and is a great communicator.
I have no hesitation in recommending Burns Jennings.
"We first hired Burns to custom-build a mantle piece for a challenging corner containing a gas fire-place. The results were stylish and functional! When we began looking for a coffee table and an entrance ‘closet’ for our newly renovated home, we were unable to find anything interesting within our price range. Burns was, once again, able to design two gorgeous pieces which are both functional and artistic. It was a pleasure working with an artist who could listen to our wish-list and make it happen at a price that worked for us! I highly recommend Burns and Cornice Furniture if you would like fine furnishings to suit the style of your home."
