"Burns took our very rough, initial idea for what we wanted for side tables and presented us with beautiful pieces of furniture that were not only functional, but pieces of art. Every step of the way Burns was patient and personable with us and provided insight that was invaluable in creating something we truly love. He has a gift for furniture design and is truly passionate about the craftsmanship he creates.

"Burns has been a delight to work with. He listened carefully as we described what we wanted. He worked collaboratively with us in the design of the pieces, offering creative suggestions that drew on his strong sense of design. His craftsmanship is clearly evident in the pieces he created. And he provided clear instructions about how to care for those pieces so we can enjoy them for years to come. We are very pleased, and recommend Burns without any hesitations."

"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."
