Sometimes less is more! This is indeed the case with these cube ottomans. They suit my needs perfectly. I originally bought a bench type ottoman (Sheffield), with the split top lid/tray. I will comment on that one a little later in my review.
The cube ottoman is about as close to perfect as it can get for me, the size, the shape, the color, the quality, and the cost. These things are very comfortable, whether youíre resting your feet or your backside. They can be placed side-by-side to give a bench look if desired, or they can separated and used as surge seating. The dark brown is really dark, but not black. Itís amply big enough for use as a foot rest, yet small enough so as not to bring undue attention to itís presence. I paid more than twice the cost for the bench type ottoman, but didnít like it near as much, which is why I decided to send it back.
And speaking of bench type (a.k.a Sheffield Espresso Storage Bench Ottoman), it was nice, well made, and the leather covering really enhanced itís appearance. But the cushions were way too firmÖfelt like you were resting your feet on a brick. My feet literally started to hurt after just a minute or two on it. It wasnít any more forgiving on oneís backside either. However, It is a very nice piece. It just wasn't very functional for me; and the color looked very much like black to me. I just couldnít convince myself that it worked in the color scheme Iím trying to achieve.
The cubes are slightly smaller in size, much more comfortable in use, somewhat closer to the color I wanted, well made, and a much more reasonable cost. Yes, sometimes less is more, and in this case MUCH MORE!

This is an inexpensive, light-weight ottoman that works beautifully for us - we actually bought two, which can be put aside if needed, used as extra seating or small tables. AND my one-year-old grandson can't get hurt on them!
Love this 13" 1/2 X16" wide X 16" square hassock. It is just the right size with the right amount of cushion for comfort. The color is as looks online a nice dark brown (not ebony). It also can sit at end of sofa with a coffee table next to it. My sofa is 83" long. PERFECT SIZS, thanks Overstock, great price too!!
I was looking for leather cubes to serve as accent pieces and extra seating when the need arose. Of course, I knew that "bonded leather" is not the same as "top grain leather", but I didn't want to spend the money for the latter. I bought two of these cubes which sit in front of my fireplace (when not in use). They can be pulled out if an adult needs a quick seat, or if a child needs to get closer to the coffee table. Of course, they also serve as footstools. They arrived in separate boxes, well-packaged, and easy to open. I would highly recommend this product as a good value.
I was looking for an ottoman for the front of our loveseat, which is quite a distance from our sofa and coffee table. These cubes fit the bill. They do not take up a ton of room, are very well made, attractive and can be used to prop up your feet or to sit a plate on while eating. Great for entertaining because the are lightweight and can be easily moved. I'm happy I bought these instead of one larger one. They were delivered with a few days of my order. Great color too.
