The stools add a great mid century mod feel to my living room. They are very sturdy and comfortable. The design is flawless. These are the finishing touches to my living room. They look much more expensive that what I paid. The assembly was easy and straight forward.
These ottomans are really stunning in my contemporary living room. They look exactly like you see in the photo and they're so soft and cushy! The only thing we had to do was pull them out of their boxes and screw on the legs, which are each secured with four screws around each leg. The weight of these is a nice heaviness, and the legs are a shiny chrome (not painted, but the real deal). I've had them for a couple of weeks, and they are sturdy and have kept their shape. Just be aware that the color of these isn't the stark-white, ultra modern color, but rather they are just a tad more cream-white. But, they're just barely different so, as long as you're not sitting them right next to a stark-white leather item, you would think they match. These are in my living room, about 15 feet away from my dining room where I have stark-white leather dining chairs, and the difference is not noticeable. I also love the color of the wood which is not a veneer but seems as though it's solid. The corners are dove-tailed, which is a nice effect. Great price and great deal! We love them! I like facing the straps out like they have in the photo for a "funkier" look, but you can always face them forward for a more traditional look.
I am actually writing this revue about 3 years after purchasing these little gems and I can say that they are extremely well made, durable, attractive, and easy to clean off mud etc. as I have GSD'S that like to run over the top of them ! Great buy !
I returned this item, not because of any issue with the construction, quality or style. On the contrary, the ottomans were gorgeous! The problem was the height, which was too short for their intended use, which was as a vanity stool. Too short by about 2-3 inches. Oh how I wish they would have been the perfect size! These are amazingly wonderful ottomans!
