This ottoman is critical to a home w* kids, as you can toss all their toys inside when company comes over. It still looks super elegant, people can sit on it, and it stores all their toys. When you open it, it has a delayed opening which is nice so your kid won't have it hurt them. I cannot say enough good things about this ottoman. HIGHLY recommend.
The ottoman arrived earlier than expected which was great. The color, style and size was just what I wanted. It holds all the games we have and still space for more. Very sturdy and I love the fact that the only thing I had to do was screw on the chubby legs which was very easy. Very rich looking. We are very satisfied with this product.
Color is good, quality is great, hinges are child friendly, storage space is large. My only reason to not give this 5 stars is that I wish the top was a little more comfortable for sitting - it's very firm. However, this does make it easier for setting things on top - a glass will not spill!
Time will tell if this "bonded leather" will last with two rambunctious boys playing on it, but I love that it is a substantial piece and that it allows for storage. The hinges don't allow for the top to slam down, which is good for little fingers. Very pleased with this purchase.
The ottoman is dark brown which matched my living room decor nicely. It's bonded leather, so it is not soft like regular leather, but it's eco-friendly and more durable if you have pets. The top of the ottoman is hard, but that makes it useful if you want to set drinks on it. You could also use it as extra seating, if you don't mind hard seats (think barely-padded stools at your local sports bar) The air lifts are amazing - best feature of the ottoman. I have stored a couple of blankets in it as storage space is a premium in my apartment. I'm going to take the feet off - I keep hitting my toes on them! (That's purely user error.) It shipped quickly and was well protected - no dents or scratches. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
This is a good looking ottoman. However, we need to return it because it is larger than we need. (My mistake). I am shopping on line at Overstock to find a smaller ottoman of same quality. Overstock will make this return easy with a pick up label from UPS.
We like the leather ottoman and the quality is real nice. We liked the height without the legs so we are using it without them but it is nice to have that option. The storage inside is great to have too.

I ordered this to replace another ottoman, which I had previously ordered from Overstock, but I returned that one because the leather had a rip in it. Overstock was wonderful about the return, paid for the return shipping and I got all my money back, so I was very pleased with their customer service. Thank you Overstock! Since the color of my first ottoman was darker than I wanted, I decided to order this model when I reordered. I am much happier with the color of this ottoman. It looks very nice in my living room and matches my sofa better. The color is med.- dark brown (depending on the lighting), not expresso, like my last one, which looked almost black. As for the construction of it, it is very well built, in my opinion. We will mostly use it for a foot rest, but when we have lots of company, it will be used for extra seating. It seems very sturdy to sit on, althought the top could be a little softer. I'm not at all worried about my husband and grandkids rough-housing around it and breaking it! The feet are screwed in on heavy bolts. The inside storage is very roomy. We store several blankets inside, which makes it easy to keep our living room looking neat and tidy. I like the gas struts instead of hinges. You just lift the top a little and it goes up the rest of the way on its own. They seem very durable and there is less chance of pinched fingers. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and am sure it will be used in our living room for many years to come.
