Bernie was extremely helpful when we chose our living room carpet. He took initiative by bringing a series of carpets to the house, let us “live with” the carpet for a week to see if we liked it and then assisted with the installation – including placing the underpad. The carpet has added a lot to our room and helped us pick a wall colour which really works well. We had our first large party with the “new” living room recently and everyone commented on how nice it looked. I would certainly go to Beckwith Galleries again if we need another carpet.


Purchasing our rug from Beckwith Galleries was one of the most pleasant shopping experiences I have ever had. I was allowed to bring a rug home and when that turned out to be too small, Bernie offered to come to our home. He arrived with six or seven rugs for me to choose from, displayed each one, explaining the pros and cons of each, all with knowledge, patience, and professionalism. We are very pleased with our choice. The experience was pleasant, productive, and stress-free.

I have been a Beckwith Galleries customer for 12 years. When we were building our home, Bernie Teklenburg worked patiently with us to find the perfect carpets within our budget. Since then he has continued to find us items for our home and wedding gifts for our children. His ability to find just the right carpet for any location and colour scheme is truly amazing. Every day we treasure and enjoy our Beckwith carpets. Bernie provides excellent service and makes choosing carpets such fun. I have recommended Beckwith to my friends and would recommend this company to anyone interested in finding the best carpets for their home.


There’s no substitute for experience. Bernie Teklenburg has been in the carpet and interior design business for decades. He takes care of you personally and is always ready to bring a carpet to your home to see it in your own space. He knows his business and his carpets are the highest quality and beautiful. This is no fly-by-night, bargain basement enterprise. If you’re looking for cheap carpets, don’t waste your time. Go in for a private showing in his own home and you’ll see the difference instantly between a carpet here and one at a carpet wholesaler.

Great service still exists.

Beckwith Galleries offers the best personal service and selection. From first contact, my needs and desires were discussed and a appointment time was set up, to meeting Bernie and viewing his wonderful carpets, the experience was exceptional.

All the carpets shown were very close to what our needs were, making our final decision even better than we had hoped for.

We would highly recommend Bernie Teklenburg and his Beckwith Galleries to anyone looking for exceptional service and outstanding quality persian carpets.

Very impressed with the high quality of cleaning and care by Beckwith Galleries.
We had a persian carpet cleaned by Beckwith Galleries and were delighted with the results.
The carpet came back clean and back to it’s original bright colours.
It also was very fresh and free of previous dog odours.
As well there had been a couple of loose threads around the edges that were tidied up as well.
Highly recommend.

Choosing a carpet can be overwhelming as it is a significant investment. I cannot imagine a more knowledgeable carpet expert than Bernie at Beckwith Galleries. He listened to our design ideas and worked with our designer and with us. He found the perfect carpet for the room and he delivered and installed the carpet. I believe we made an excellent purchase that will increase in value over time.

Bernie has a very pleasant personality and is very kind and accommodating. I highly recommend Beckwith Galleries.


I have purchased several carpets from Beckwith Galleries over the years. The owner, Bernie Teklenburg, is very knowledgeable about carpets and he has a great eye for detail. He has a wide selection of carpets and the quality is excellent. The Persian carpets in our dining room and living room are a constant source of complements from guests to our home. His knowledge of interior design really helped us transform areas of our house by adding just the right carpet without having to change the furniture. If you are serious about purchasing a beautiful carpet and you are looking for personalized, professional service I would highly recommend Beckwith Galleries.


I have been very pleased with Beckwith Galleries. We just did a renovation and bought new carpets for our living room and family room. They were very professional and knowledgeable of all the carpets. We have been dealing with Beckwith Galleries for the past 15 years. We live 4 hours away from Beckwith Galleries and they delivered and set up all the carpets…..very happy.
