Ogi the owner is super professional and is real easy to work with. He's authentic and really wants the buyer to be happy. He brought numerous rugs to our house, and took the time to understand what we like and didn't like, at the end of the day we're very happy and the pricing seemed very fair. I will be going back to Istanbul Rug in the future and would recommend to anyone looking for these types of rugs.
This rug is beautiful! It's actually Arts and Craft style which I love. Ogi brought it to my home, put a pad underneath, and it feels very cozy on my feet. I've gotten many compliments on it already. I would shop here again. Ogi and his brother were very Covid conscious. I felt comfortable having them inside my house.
What a wonderful find in Downtown San Rafael! My husband and I were looking for a quality, high end, Turkish rug and, boy, did we find just the right place. The Istanbul Rug Company has the most extensive inventory for any size rug we had ever come upon in an amazingly spacious, comfortable setting. We received personalized service from Ogi and Ali who showed us a wide variety of styles and colors making our most difficult decision being which rug to choose. We felt really secure in knowing that if the rug we selected just didn't work out, we would be able to return it and select another. All of this while enjoying a cup of Turkish tea. The showroom is enormous and houses hundreds of rugs from which to choose. We ended up choosing a rug that was perfect for our dining room. And at a very competitive price compared to other rug companies, here in Marin as well as in the City. We couldn't be happier with our selection. Thanks to you both for making our purchase so pain free and enjoyable. It was a please to have met you both.
This store is a rare find.
We sent Istanbul Rug four high quality Persian rugs for cleaning
The rugs were returned both crystal clean and well repaired;
in far better condition than after previous cleanings.
I think I can say you are not likely to find a better company for
cleaning and repair of Persian rugs.
I can also say that we looked at some very high quality Turkish
rugs at the store, silk rugs with hundreds of knots per square
inch, understandably expensive but fairly priced. Turkish rugs
are not quite as expensive as they used to be because of the
dramatic decline in the Turkish lira.
In short, this is a very reputable Rug store, and just great
for cleaning and repair.
These guys were better than professional they were very friendly too. I had minimal knowledge about rugs and they gave me 101 and didn't make me feel silly and were happy to show me LOTs of rugs. When I was on the fence about my choice they brought the rug to my house the next day so I could I see it in the space and even brought additional similar rugs. They even helped me move some furniture. I'd absolutely go to them again and you should too. CASH is king
Instanbul Rug has stunning rugs and a beautiful showroom. We live close by and I was so happy to see the space brighten up into a beautiful rug showroom. We have been in the market for a new rug for our living room, and decided to finally stop in the store, and we were blown away. Ogi and his team were super friendly, energetic, and knowledgeable (we were even served Turkish coffee!). They flipped through hundreds of 9x12 rugs for us until we decided on the one rug we loved. We also went in with a certain expectation of what we wanted, but after showing Ogi a picture of our room, and him understanding our criteria, he honed in immediately on what would look best. They have great customer service too, and are willing to work with you to make sure it is the right rug for you, and most importantly that you love It. And we do, 100%. I would go back to Instanbul Rug in a heartbeat. I will share a photo of the rug once we have it set up in our room. Just waiting for the new rug pad 🙂 Thank you, Instanbul Rug!
We recently pulled up the carpet in our house to discover hardwood floors. Our next step was to find rugs for bedroom and hallway. After some research we went to Istanbul rugs. The service was amazing and selection above and beyond any other showroom we had been to. We found the perfect rugs for our home and learned the history and symbolic meanings of the pieces we selected. We even got a special visit from the owner when they delivered our rugs. We loved everything so much we went back and purchased an entry rug. I highly recommend this establishment!
The people at Istanbul Rug were super helpful in listening to our needs and design aesthetic. They seemed enthused about their rugs and were genuinely interested in finding something right for us. After going through a stack of Rugs, we came upon the most beautiful and mesmerizing Tibetan rug we had ever seen. After hearing the price, we realized there was no way we'd be able to afford it. Right at that moment the owner came in the front door and came over to us--inviting us to take off our shoes and to walk and sit on the carpet. He told us where it had been made the workmanship and quality of the materials. He could see how much we wanted it and in short order made what seemed like an impossible dream a reality. We love our rug and had a great experience dealing with both the staff and owner.
