The red is a deep, rich red and adds just the right pop of color to our living room. Had just bought a brown leather sectional and needed something this size for both an ottoman and to act as a coffee table. This is perfect! It looks like a nice quality piece and we've been very happy with it!
I have had this ottoman about a year now. It has been put through a fair amount of abuse (kids eating on it, people sitting on it, used daily) and I have to say it has held up quite well. I was concerned when other reviewers indicated they lost some of the color. It hasn't happened to me. We just use a moist towel to wipe it down occasionally and it looks as good as new. Good value, durable and nice piece, highly recommend .
