I was looking for more storage, and had been considering buying a storage bench when I saw this ottoman. I bought two of them, to sit in front of two matching chairs that needed ottomans. They are great! As other reviewers have said, they aren't flimsy, and don't require assembly. They are very dark brown (almost black) and are on the small side (OK with me because I live in an apartment). I'm pleased with how much storage space is inside. They are perfect for holding my 4 year old niece's toys--and, the lids won't smash down on her little fingers! They are super functional...you can sit on them, use them as a table when sitting on the floor, plus--they don't slide away when you prop your feet up on them! They arrived in perfect condition. Highly recommended. This is my second positive experience buying furniture from Overstock.com! I will definately purchase more.
I bought this ottoman to go with the espresso Manhattan Club Chair and the Studio Arc Floor Lamp, also from Overstock. Together, in the corner of my loft, on a faux shaggy fur rug, these items form a tight, interrelated matrix of form and function. When I sit here and kick up my feet on this ottoman, I enter a world of relaxation so deep that I feel like I'm going back in time. And thanks to this ottoman's handy storage feature, when I am in the past, I can pull things out of it that are from the future and blow the mind of my past self.
All the reviews where right! This ottoman is beautiful! The packaging it arrived in was solid and the ottoman was covered in a clothlike material so that there would be no damage during shipping. The stitching on this ottoman makes it look rich and the feature that I really like is that the storage area is lined with a heavy, quality fabric. Great ottoman for the price!!
This is a beautiful ottoman. The leather is so soft and the ottoman is very well constructed. Very happy with this purchase. No assembly necessary and it comes with a cloth case so it doesn't get scratched during shipping.
We received our ottomon today....less than 48 hours after it was ordered! Thank you Overstock!! It was so well packed it slipped easily out of the carton protected in a fabric "bag" and needed no assembling.
It is exactly as described, although not "blacker than browner" (as commented by others here) which made us happy as our other leather pieces are dark brown. This is brown enough to look brown. The site does not mention it's weight... unfilled it's under 24 pounds and easy to move if you want to use it as an extra seat or a footrest in a different room. It's compact so it doesn't overwhelm any space we've tried it in. Pushed up against our one barrel club chair it provides an adequate leg rest being wide enough for comfort but not so wide it looks clunky; residing in the guest room as a place to put suitcases down, or plunk down and chat, it's perfect. The lining inside will protect blankets from "pulls" or hands from splinters. The top has a pnuematic closing and closes very slowly, no slamming little fingers. Although you can see the hinge on one side it isn't intrusive in the design.
A comment about the "bi-cast" with which I was totally unfamiliar. We had some concerns after reading internet descriptions. It definitely does not have the "hand" of top grain leather, but it does have the appearance of, and the simulated feel of, leather. It feels "warmer" and softer than plastic and not as stiff as naugahyde can be. It doesn't scream "faux". The edging is done well and makes it look richer. I read mixed reviews on bi-cast "leather" on the internet, but if you're not looking for a "fine furniture" ottomon (for which you'd pay more than twice the $$$s this one cost) this will fit the bill nicely.
We are regular Overstock customers having bought a large area rug, linens and blankets and now this. We have been very happy with everything we have purchased here and the excellent customer support we've experienced. I don't think this product will disappoint you at all if you're not looking for very high end finishes but are wanting a nice, usable, attractive, pretty well-made and reasonably priced ottomon. After shopping the local furniture stores we didn't see many that were made better even when they were far more expensive, which is why this product was given 5 stars .
These ottomans (I bought two) are very well made with good quality materials. The storage space is easily accessible and adequate for throws, books. whatever. They are not too heavy and are easily moved but stay in place when in use.
This ottoman is perfect for providing additional seating and storage in our small living room. It was packed very well and arrived in excellent condition. It seems sturdy and should hold up well. For the price, you cannot do better. We have a similar piece purchased elsewhere and it cost considerably more. Overstock.com is the place to go for good quality home decor.
