Richard Habib, owner of Alexander’s Decorative Rugs knows his stuff. Even that sentence is an gross understatement. His knowledge and customer service goes above and beyond what one would normally expect from, well, anyone in the retail industry.
I gave Richard “the challenge” which he says he just loves. I had a rug, a piece passed down to me from my mother when she died that was an incredible tea washed hand knotted silk rug worth, well, let’s not talk about it. Let’s just say it wasn’t cheap. It was ruined. What he returned to me was nothing short of a miracle.
Today was that grand day where I saw my restored rug. It looks better than when it was even purchased. The silk glows and the tea wash is perfect. There is no cat odor and no stains. It’s absolutely beautiful. Just a fantastic piece. Richard worked so hard to make sure that it was redone exceptionally. I couldn’t ask for more, and I can’t refer anyone any higher.
