After having the ottoman in our living room for about four weeks, the fabric began to pill. We are not "hard" on our furniture and were surprised at how quickly the material showed wear and tear. The photo led me to believe the color would lean toward the coral shade that is popular these days. I even read the reviews to ensure I was on the right track with the color, so I was surprised to find the ottoman was more pink than anything else. The size and weight make this piece easy to move, which is a perk. The open/close feature works well. This product would be worth the purchase if only a higher quality fabric was used. Too bad.
Well worth the money! The color is a beautiful chocolate brown, it has a great hinge lift top and is very comfortable to sit on. As usual Overstock comes through with value, style and great prices. Would definitely recommend to friends looking for classy storage ideas.
This storage bench is very dark coffee. I had to put on the feet, which was easy enough. I'm just disappointed in the darkness of it. It matches the picture however. I just realize, I, personally, think its too dark for my taste. It would have been the perfect opportunity for a pop of color, had I chose, say, cerulean, but and I went for the matchy-match. It kind of reminds me of a cup of coffee with swirls of chocolate. The floral part is the dark part and the background is slightly lighter. The quality appears good and it's very nice inside. The mechanism to hold it open works fine. The button top makes it look of a higher quality. It's, like I say, "handsome".
I really like the look of this storage bench and was surprised by how heavy it was. The color of the picture was very accurate. So many of the benches I looked at would have been too tall for my platform bed - was very happy to find this one. My only disappointment was that the fabric isn't a little thicker because my dogs like to use it to get up and down from the bed!
