"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 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’ve had an excellent experience working with Burns. He had a great ability to combine an artistic vision with our practical needs, make suggestions as well as hear our wants/needs/limitations, and in the end deliver a product that we absolutely love! He completed the projects with the utmost professionalism and timeliness and his craftsmanship is superb!
