Bernie’s vast experience, knowledge and training – as well as his extensive travels to the ‘cradle of fine carpets’ around the world, is appreciated by both serious and new collectors alike. In addition to private sales, he has recently placed a number of fine carpets in select Embassies in Ottawa, Ontario and is recognized for his specialized appraisal and consulting expertise for insurance, estate and probate purposes.

Every carpet handled by us is 100% genuine and must pass a rigid set of standards – condition, age, rarity, craftsmanship; every one accepted is evaluated, authenticated and catalogued into the register.

We are especially proud of our proven ability to introduce ‘first-time’ customers to the fine carpet experience. As a result of Bernie’s careful selection and personalized product line, they are able to offer fine carpets in all price ranges

If you are thinking of fine carpets, then consider the value, affordability and service that only we can offer. You will be surprised by how easy Bernie can make it for you to put fine carpets in your home.

Beckwith Galleries prides itself on the relationships it has developed with clients over the years and attributes its success to being able to provide excellent customer service with total customer satisfaction. We offer ‘in-home’ viewing and estimates.
