I ordered a similar piece years ago and it just wore out with age. I would have given it 5 stars (especially due to the quality of the soft hinge) except mine came with a little bump underneath the leather on one of the panels. Otherwise perfect - lots of storage, nice close, good looking - great for toddlers (Soft edges)
This was so easy to assemble. I wouldn't even call it assembling. It was just the legs for it. It looks perfect in my living room. It was the exact thing I needed to finish off the living room. overstock is just a great company to work with
While the description claims "The safety hinges ensure the lid stays open" this is far from the truth in my experience. The hinges leak grease and fail to hold the lid up. Every once in awhile I can get it to stay up but I wouldn't count on it staying there for more than 30 seconds. Overstock was unable to get me replacement hinges and while customer service was helpful and issued a partial refund, shipping this back wasn't really an option with it's large size. It's a nice looking ottoman but I would've gone with something else if I knew the lid didn't stay up like the description claims.
I have owned this ottoman for about 3 years now and it has held up beautifully, I was worried that it would be cheaply constructed because it was inexpensive but it is a great addition to our family room. I should note that we do not have small children so cant speak about how it would hold up with climbing, jumping etc
I wanted storage and a coffee table that you could put your feet on without worrying about scratches and this fit the bill perfectly. You can still put glasses on the surface if you use a coaster. I keep a tray in the center of the ottoman (which is good sized) for a more solid surface as well.
we received the product earlier that expected and the assembly was minimal. Overall the ottoman looks nice in our livingroom and fits the space quite well. We have small children so I was looking for something that would look nice but would be able to withstand the beating for little ones. So far it's been jumped on, slid on, drooled on... various typical little people activity and it looks like it will hold up quite well! The storage space is quite nice as well, we are using it for our blankets for now. Very satisfied with our purchase.
We bought this ottoman in anticipation of our daughter and her family coming for the summer. It made a great storage place for toys and kids' books, and the slow closing hinges made it safe, as well. The leather, while not real leather, is more realistic than many bonded leathers are, and well-fitted to the frame. It's comfortable for resting feet, stable enough to rest a plate (though I'd use a wide tray for beverages), and makes great extra seating when needed. The star taken off was d/t the fact that the feet don't all screw into place tightly. One of them, in order to be at the right angle with the rest, is a bit loose.
We wanted a soft ottoman/living room table. This fit the bill. It's big. So keep that in mind. It won't work for small spaces unless you want the walking area to be taken up entirely by the Ottoman/living room coffee table. It's in our nicely re-done basement now and looks great with the decor.
Easy to assemble, beautiful material and color matches perfect with my furniture! I looked and compared so many ottomans, I believe I made the right decision when ordering this one. The size is perfect for my living room, it has plenty of storage and has a light wight. I'm very happy with it!!
