We're using it as a coffee table/ottoman. It is well styled and well made. Very nice charcoal gray. Plenty of storage space for pillows and blanket. An excellent value. Can be used with or without the casters. If we had any critique at all, it would have been an inch or two taller (we may modify by adding feet at some point) and a little heavier (it's rather light weight). All in all though, we'd certainly buy it again.
The dark gray fabric initially caught my eye but upon delivery the ottoman sat very low to the ground so I immediately proceeded to add foot rests that matched our sofa. Liked the end result very much except the ottoman was hard and not comfortable since there was very little padding. Almost a year to the date the ottoman structure snapped while a guest was sitting on it~VERY embarrassing for her to say the least. While opening up to expose the support structure I found that it had been poorly designed and an inappropriate choice of wood was used and poorly designed to support much of anything. It's a wonder it did not break before now though it is rarely sat on. I would not recommend this piece to anyone. Poor quality, poor design & poor materials. Don't waste your money.
Everything about this is perfect;however if I had carpet I don't think I feel that way. The wheels that this came with are cheesy and cheap 1980s wheels. It slides beautifully across my hardwoods and the grey is great. They wrote "brownish grey" all over the package but this is Grey with no brown undertones.
This ottoman came in perfect condition. The description on the Overstock.com website was accurate. Please note that you CANNOT MOVE this ottoman with the weight of a person on it or the wheels will BREAK (SHATTER).

This ottoman is lightweight and rolls easily on carpet. We have had no problems with the wheels, but yes, it doesn't seem like it's meant to be used as an adult seat. We use it in our basement which is quickly turning into a playroom and it looks very sleek. The ottoman is easily to open to store blankets or toys. Would recommend this product!
The ottoman looks great and is very functional, but don't make the mistake of sitting on this or putting too much weight on it as it will probably break. I have had the ottoman for about 3 weeks and I can already feel spots on the top where the wood and framing is either broken or falling apart.
I ordered this piece for my 10 year old little girls room. Nice, large piece - can fit 2 kids on the inside :) not too tall, she uses it for storage & some lounging around. So lite to open for a child. Fabric is durable, we also have 2 dogs, so this is so easy to clean & hides hair & dirt as well. It looks great, very timeless look, something to grow in to. Very pleased!!! She loves it!
I bought the ottoman to put by my bed for an old dog to use. It's perfect for her. I thought it would be more of a brown, but thats because I didn't really see "brown-grey" and thought it to be more brown, but fine! The dog actually uses it a lot.
I love them!! I bought two. They are a great VALUE!! These square low ottomans were exactly what we were looking for for the end of the bed maximizing storage needs! The color is truly a grey non-nap flannel look, like grey suiting and the fabric is a good enough quality to match most decors. The storage can fit two pillows or king quilt and sheet set easily. The are 31" square, so you need a little more room at the end of your bed than a type rectangular ottoman. They would be nice in a family room given the storage but be aware that inside, the top is not recessed so storage is only about 8" deep. They are a little lower than the typical seat, but with good knees, no problem to sit and change your shoes. The casters that come with them are a little cheap so on hard wood, this might be a problem. I have them on a thick rug so it works nicely. You could add your own legs if needed.
Overall, this is a great buy if your household does not abuse or overuse furniture. I bought it for the family room for my small dogs to lounge on so I can have the couch for myself!! They like it and use it but It is kind of hard on the top (not much cushioning) so I had to put a couple of blankets on top to made it softer. I do love the color and style and also the storage capabilities for extra blankets.
Using this for children's play area as toy storage and seating for when little cousins and play dates come over. My kids love that they can just open the ottoman for their toys instead of looking all over the house. Since this ottoman is placed by the tv, they also use this as their viewing area. Love the fabric blends well with my dark furniture and floors. A must buy, you will not be disappointed!
The ottoman looks just like the picture. It does sit low to the ground. We are using it in our master bedroom closet so that is not an issue. We also use it to store blankets. It's average quality. Nothing special. But it's good enough for our purposes. If I were buying it as an ottoman in our living room I would want something nicer.
I was looking to replace my coffee table with an ottoman because my baby was beginning to crawl/pull up. We didn't want to worry about the sharp edges of a table. This was the perfect solution, looks great, and is very versatile. Great for resting feet, trays, etc and the storage is an added bonus.
As noted in previous reviews - the wheels are the weakness on this ottoman. I bought some nice casters at Home Depot and installed those. This increased the height and looks of the ottoman - it was a bit low for my couch. Otherwise this is a great piece with plenty of storage.
I like this a lot. I think it will last a while with my kids. I especially like the fabric since i think it will clean up easily with spills or will remain clean despite lots of dirty shoes or feet on it. We also put toys in there which has been nice. The only problem is the ottoman is kind of loud when you close it, though it does have a spring hinge type thing. So far no fingers crushed.

one of the hinges has already fallen off but it still opens and resists stains like a boss! perfect for a growing family, even I (a 145lb female) stand on it and jump with the kids! I am big gal to be jumping on furniture and if it can handle my jelly I am sure it can handle your families!
