"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."
"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.
"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.
