We came upon Leon Norell Carpets from an internet search, and arranged to visit the warehouse, a journey of about eight miles. We have some previous experience of purchasing Oriental carpets and had been looking around for a room sized carpet for a reception room. Mr Norell dealt with us personally, and offered an excellent choice. We settled on a Kashan, which he was happy for us to take initially on a sale or return basis. We were also thinking of replacing the runner in our hall. This needed to be longer than many on the market, and we had fairly specific requirements as to width. We returned, and again Mr Norell dealt with us personally. From his vast stock, he was able to offer us several choices that fitted our measurements. We settled on a Hamadan, also initially offered on sale or return.Both have proved to be excellent choices.We were very impressed by the range of the stock, the courteous and unpressurised service, and Mr Norell’s concern that we should be completely happy with our purchases. We felt that both purchases represented good value for money, and the journey was well worth making. We are very happy.
