Amazing experience! This is the third time Beckwith Galleries has helped us out finding the perfect rug.
Bernie listens a to what you want and then using his vast experience and inventory brought over several rugs to choose from. He left us with several to try out for a while and it was hard to pick with so many excellent choices.
This process makes finding rugs a Great experience and in the end you have far better handmade products than any store for a fair price. The service is outstanding.
Bernie Tecklenberg of Beckwith Galleries, Ottawa, provided me with excellent advice and service in the purchase of two oriental carpets for a great room and master bedroom. He visited my home with a varied choice of carpets and offered great advice when I was uncertain, making sure the carpets were appropriate to the size and existing furnishings. I have no hesitation in recommending Beckwith Galleries to professional designers and individual buyers.
My husband and I had just completed a home renovation in which fitted carpeting had been replaced by wood flooring. We wanted to purchase good quality rugs to complete this project. We searched on-line for companies in Ottawa and found the Beckwith Galleries’ site very informative, including photos of rugs that appealed to our taste. It was easy to set up an appointment to go to the showroom and we found the range of rugs were of good quality, and as advertised. The owner, Bernie Teklenburg, was very knowledgeable, took plenty of time to make himself acquainted with our our home (we took photos along with us) our tastes and our budget. He was able to work with us to narrow down options and, most important of all, offered to bring a selection to our home so that we could see how they would look. This made a big difference, since tone, design and colouring were crucial and could not have been properly judged from being seen only in a showroom, Overall, he was prompt and professional and very pleasant and we are very happy with our experience.
Bernie Teklenburg takes very good care of his customers. Having a wide range of carpets in a variety of styles and sizes (but of consistently high quality), he is willing to take the time to make sure that a client gets not just any carpet, but the *right* carpet for their space and aesthetic. Providing time for the client to look at and live with carpets in their own homes prior to sale is a lovely example of the prime service that Bernie provides. I’m still so pleased with my carpet to this day, and I count that as a job well done on the part of Beckwith Galleries!
It was a pleasure doing business with Bernie Teklenburg and Beckwith Galleries. He is clearly very knowledgeable and treated us with professionalism and respect. We never felt rushed into making a decision. In fact, he showed a remarkable degree of patience and quite quickly got a good sense of what we were looking for. Perhaps the only small caveat is that he went a bit over the budget we had discussed, but we are delighted with our final choice. Finally, the installation was done with great care and professionalism. We would recommend Beckwith Galleries to anyone looking for a quality product and superb service. Thanks Bernie.
We were given Bernie’s name by our interior designer to help us in choosing area carpets for our living and dining rooms.
We found Bernie to be courteous, patient and very knowledgeable. He made several house visits until we found the perfect carpets for our home.
We would definitely recommend Beckwith Galleries to anyone wishing to purchase a quality carpet.
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.
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.
