    Have 5-6 Persian Carpets, Tabriz and Bidjar which I thought needed cleaning. Bernie came to house to collect, including one under 6' piano.

    Very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He told me 2-3 did not require professional cleaning just a good vacuum and beating. He also told me info about them I did not know, including fact that two Tabriz were wool and silk, not pure wool as I had thought.

    Got the three he took back today. They look great.

    For professional and honest service, this is a very safe bet

    Can’t speak highly enough of the wonderful service provided by Bernie. He cleaned and repaired beautifully a hand knotted rug for us and it looks like new.

    He is very knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with. He delivered the rug to us himself and made sure it was laid correctly. We highly recommend Beckwith Galleries!

    It is always a pleasure to meet with and do business with Bernie Teklenburg at Beckwith Galleries.  Bernie has always been prepared to go the extra mile to satisfy us with the carpets that suit our taste, size requirement and décor. 

    If we have not been entirely satisfied with his first offering, we simply return the carpet at the Gallery’s expense and Bernie enthusiastically resumes the search for the one that meets with our complete satisfaction. 

    We are deeply grateful for the effort Bernie puts into finding carpets of high quality which we have chosen to purchase with complete confidence. 

    We would not hesitate to highly recommend him and Beckwith Galleries to family and friends.

    My husband and I can't praise Bernie Teklenburg of Beckwith Galleries enough.  His service, knowledge and professionalism were outstanding.  We were looking to buy a new Persian rug for our family room and ended up buying four! 

    A Persian  Moud Mashad for our living room, an Indo Gabbeh for the family room and two Gabbeh Irans for our entrance ways. 

    We were that impressed with his pricing, which we considered very reasonable.  Bernie also took away two Chinese Silk rugs and our dining room Persian Mashad for repair and a re-dye. The results were amazing and again, very reasonable.

    We researched and visited other rug dealers but found the experience daunting. Nothing compared to dealing with Bernie. It was a pleasure working with Bernie; his energy knows no bounds!

    We recently purchased a Persian Heriz rug from Bernie. He was very helpful and wonderful to deal with.

    He took us through a number of options in his showroom and came by our house to help us make a decision and set up the rug with an underpad.

    Outstanding inventory of high end area rugs. The owner, Bernie Teklenburg is an extremely knowledgeable expert with an eye for design and a process for helping clients find the right carpet.

    He did a preselection, presenting me with several options and I took two rugs home to try out. I am very pleased with the result. The rug is beautiful for my space. Delivery and pickup and all service provided was excellent.

    It is the second time I purchase a carpet from Bernie at Beckwith Galleries and both times I have been impressed with the quality of the service and the wide variety of carpets.

    This last time, I was buying a large 6' x 9' carpet for the living room space and Bernie generously allowed me to try it out in the space first.

    It makes such a difference in making a expensive purchase to be able to see what it will actually look like at home. I would not have originally picked that carpet but it turned out to match and fit perfectly!

    Beckwith Galleries had such an amazing collection of beautiful rugs, it was a bit overwhelming. I brought a photo to show Bernie my décor to provide a visual of what I preferred.

    A week later, Bernie arrived with a few rugs to choose from, but one stood out and matched my décor - and my preferences - perfectly. I am beyond pleased. The rug I selected is gorgeous and suits my condo to a T!!

    A gallery, in the truest sense of the word. Beckwith is a beautiful space, tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood, that displays the most beautiful, authentic, and unique carpet & textile arts for your home or office.

    The real deal. Bernie himself is the curator; he is a generous host who provides space for the client to share their requirements and in turn, skillfully interprets these needs to find the perfect match for your project.

    Beckwith Gallery has a wonderful selection of handmade carpets, and Bernie was the one vendor I came across in Ottawa who really worked with me to ensure I found the right one.

    Thanks so much, Bernie.

    We recently decided to replace our living carpet. After a number of less than satisfactory visits with retailers in Ottawa we made an appointment with Beckwith Gallery. I sent a few photos of our living room into Bernie in advance of our meeting.

    Beckwith Gallery has a great selection of very high quality carpets, and Bernie’s guidance was instrumental in finding the perfect carpet for our living room.

    No high pressure sales tactics, no mysterious discount prices. Outstanding products, service at very reasonable prices.

    Working with Bernie at Beckwith Galleries was a pleasure. When we couldn’t quite find what we were looking for, Bernie sent us photos of possibilities not in his showroom.

    He then allowed us to take the chosen area rugs home so that we could “try” them out in different rooms. Two of them were perfect!

    In addition, Bernie handled the cleaning of our 40-year-old, living room, Persian carpet. Now it quietly glows.

    I was introduced to Beckwith Galleries and Mr. Bernie Teklenburg by a friend very knowledgeable in the area of fine arts, including oriental carpets.

    Over a period of about nine months (when there were no deadlines) Bernie provided outstanding, and professional service with thoughtful advice and suggestions, exploring and assessing my interests and needs.

    Throughout he was focused, and creatively helpful, with interesting ideas. The results were excellent, and the carpets chosen enhanced one another, and the living spaces I provided, in a complementary and pleasing manner.

    Bernie has been a pleasure to deal with for our recent purchase of a lovely Persian carpet.

    His selection is extensive and varied, he shared his knowledge with enthusiasm, he allowed us to try several rugs in our home, in fact the rug we finally decided on was one we had not even seen but he thought we might like based on the room photos we had sent him initially!

    We would definitely recommend Beckwith Galleries for quality Persian rugs.

    I was completely/100% happy with my dealings with Beckwith Galleries and the tremendous service they provided. Bernie, and his associate, Doug, were a pleasure to deal with and thoroughly knowledgeable and professional in every way.

    Bernie came to my home and gave me a very professional assessment of the damage/wear to my four rugs and was very transparent and pragmatic about the extent of the work and restoration he thought was appropriate, which also kept the cleaning and repair work to a reasonable and realistic cost.

    He gave me a well/informed estimate on the spot and took the rugs away that very day. I had them back in much less time than I would have expected, given the scope of the work, and they looked tremendous. The rugs are certainly 60, or more, years old - they have been in our household for about 40 years.

    After cleaning and restoration they looked beautiful! The colours had been revived, the pile was springier to the step and the worn edges and fringes were all safely stitched and repaired to ensure no further deterioration.

    In addition, Doug also came home and did an excellent/virtually-invisible on-site repair to the border of another rug (which, given its size, was not practical to take out). I am very grateful for Bernie and Doug’s timely and professional service and cannot recommend their work more highly.

    We recently purchased a beautiful Persian carpet from Beckwith Galleries. Bernie spent a great deal of time and patience with me as we thought about several candidates. When I told Bernie the space we had in mind, he suggested a carpet that I eventually went with!

    I couldn’t be happier.
