“Wouldn’t buy a rug anywhere else!  Excellent service on top of quality.  Great espresso, too!”

Anna Koufos


“As a client of many years, my experience has always been a pleasure.  I have purchased carpeting, an array of rugs, and have never been displeased.  The staff is knowledgeable, courteous, and the best part is bringing the rugs back and forth to try in one’s own home before purchasing.  My advice:  Start your search here….”they’ve got your rug!”  

-Ann Self, Virginia Beach, VA


“As a customer for the past 15 years, I am never disappointed with the service I receive from the store.  Usually it only takes me one run of sampling rugs in my house to make a decision but this recent purchase required four runs.  The staff was just as accommodating from the first run right through to the fourth.  It makes such a difference being able to try the rugs out in your home!”
Babs Miller 


“Dear Mark, 

I want to express my appreciation for the outstanding job your shop did on our large Persian rug. The repair is superb and the color restoration is excellent. We’ve already had many positive comments on the job you did for us. I also want to mention how helpful and courteous your employees were in delivering the rug and the careful attention they gave to making sure it was laid properly. Thank you again for your assistance.

I would not hesitate to recommend your business to others.”

Sincerely, Barbara Johnson

“Diane Samareh helped us with our rug selection two weeks ago.  She was very helpful and friendly.  We told her what we wanted and how much we wanted to pay and the size.  She took us right to the rug we wanted.  Of course, the color choice was ours. We have lived in Virginia Beach 31 yrs but this was our first time in your store.  We will be returning later this year for a larger one. Your selection is exceptional and your slogan “I got your rug” says it all.”

“Our organization regards Mark Gonsenhauser’s as an outstanding resource for quality accent rugs demanded by our corporate clients.  On a recent requirement for a high-profile CFO’s office, Tabitha Mund provided exceptional advice and expertise so that our client’s needs were answered.   This  high standard of service extended both to the delivery of multiple options for the client’s evaluation and to the installation of the selected rug.  All of our budget and scheduling requests were met efficiently and on time.  On those occasions when projects demand this type of specialized accessory, we feel fortunate to have this level of product and product knowledge available to our firm.”

“Dear Mark,
A big THANKS to you and your staff for “saving” my rug!  After cleaning and stain removal the colors were more vibrant and it smelled so fresh and clean.  I appreciate that it was done so quickly and I had back before I was supposed to.  I look forward to coming in to buy my next rug…I love all the new styles you are carrying!” 

Regards, Mandy B. – Virginia Beach, Virginia

“Because Gonsenhauser is known for the best rugs in the area I was intimidated to go in as I was not a “high end customer”.  It did not matter if i was looking at rugs for $500 or $5000 – they gave me incredible and personalized service.  Absolutely no pressure to buy.  They absolutely want you to happy with your rugs – and they do everything to help you make the right choices.”

Sharon Ross

“For more than 20 years we have enjoyed purchasing from Gonsenhauser’s. We have been especially happy to find very large rugs and odd sizes we would have been unable to find elsewhere. Even better, we were able to support local business by fulfilling our needs here in Hampton Roads!”
