This week I bought two gorgeous rugs from Ogi at Istanbul Rugs. I visited several other stores and compared prices and quality. I ended up returning to Istanbul Rug because the price I was quoted was fair (and better than the other options I found while shopping around). Ogi and his crew treated me with respect and didn't pressure me. Thank you!
the showroom is amazing, the variety, space to look at the different rugs and the really nice and easy going help from all the staff makes this the place to go to when looking for a new rug
they were helpful without being pushy and in no way rushed me or made me feel pressured, plus again having this big space to showcase the different kinds and sizes of rugs made looking at them a breeze
i had a rug picked up and cleaned, it came back better then it was originally and in lightning time, i then had Ogi and his guys take another rug to be cleaned
Go to Istanbul rug when you want or need a new one or call for a rug pick up for cleaning

Istanbul Rug is a wonderful addition to our San Rafael community. Ogi and his team are friendly, welcoming and very knowledgable about fine rugs. My wife and I bought three rugs from them, and we love all three. One is a large rug for our living room, which Ogi helped us pick out to coordinate perfectly with our color scheme and furniture. The others are smaller, intricately designed rugs for our bedroom which bring a real sense of luxury and comfort to the room. Best of all, Ogi gave a great price on some beautifully made rugs. My wife and I highly HIGHLY recommend Ogi and Istanbul Rug!
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.
After visiting dozens of rug stores, I stumbled on Istanbul Rug accidentally while getting my tire changed. They occupy the old Bananas at large store on fourth and F St. in San Rafael. I was surprised at the huge inventory they offered. Within 10 minutes I had found three rugs I really liked. The owner was extremely kind and offered to bring the rugs by and believe it or not he let me try one of them out for several days, so I could decide if I really loved it. And I did. I am now one satisfied customer and highly recommend this business.
Thanks, Ogi and team, for connecting us with three beautiful rugs! We've had them for several weeks now, and I love them a little more every day. Hard to say which is my favorite. I love the large family room rug because it magically looks just a little different almost very time I walk into the room, depending on the exterior light. It's a treat each morning I come upstairs to see what "mood" it will present. But the amazingly soft and smooth beauty next to the bed is also a treat each time my bare feet slide across it.
Ogi did a wonderful job bringing a few of our selections to try out in our space and even added a few to consider that he picked based on our descriptions of our home and the rugs we thought would work. My husband and I ended up buying one we had initially selected, and two of his suggestions. His team also had helpful input as we considered options, and they more than earned their keep working through the rug stacks and hauling around the wares! All were eager to educate us about the industry and what distinguished the various rugs and styles.
We had a great time shopping at Istanbul Rug and recommend you do the same. As San Rafael residents living nearby, we are happy to have the store as a new neighbor. Ogi and co. have made beautiful use of the old Bananas at Large space, and its a pleasure to pass by seeing the beautiful rugs displayed in the windows. Do yourself a favor and stop in for a closer look.
We had a great experience with Istanbul Rugs. We really enjoyed meeting Oguzhan. We had just heard about the new San Rafael location and stopped in just to take a look. Oguzhan provided us with excellent service. He was very helpful and professional without being pushy. He showed us a lot of rugs (plus helped keep our 5 yr old entertained! : ). We were glad to find that prices were very reasonable and now we have a beautiful new run in our livingroom! Thank you Oguzhan!
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.
We walked in looking for a rug to go in the living room of our remodeled mid-century modern home. The red had to be really deep to fit the other decor. Ogi worked through two piles of rugs until we fund just the right one: a modern design made for them in Nepal. The colors are gorgeous, deep red, caramel and tan. We couldn't be happier with the rug or the sales experience.
