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.
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.
The ottoman is good size and fits our needs. However, one of the wheels broke on the first day due to me sitting on the ottoman and I'm 110lbs. I believe it should be able to withstand my weight. Overstock customer service was great as always and immediately sent a replacement. We've had it for several months now and the fabric has deteriorated significantly already. I guess you get what you pay for.
We had this for about two years. We used it as a coffee table while our babies were in their first couple years. The wheels basically disintegrated (okay, the broke up, but in these weird pieces over the period of a couple months), but it looked fine without them. Great for storage and looks sharp.
This ottoman has so much storage space. It stays open well and is easily moved from space to space (wheel base) only thing if you plan on it as extra seating be a little careful when you go to sit as it easily moves but over all, love it! The color is described as brown-grey, it should ready Grey as there is no Brown in this fabrice but perfect for what I was looking for. Great purchase.
Almost perfect because it definitely sat low. Like really low! Fortunately I had some other legs from an older style ottoman that I screwed in to the feet of this one (almost screwed up thru the fabric!) but added at least 1.5" to the height. I get the idea, the casters that were included was to make it look like it's 'floating' but it just was too low. Also, the storage wasn't so great. The lid took up more 'space' than needed in my opinion. The bottom storage is fairly shallow. Currently being used for shoes and in my closet as a dressing station.
This ottoman was a bargain! I love the color, it was super easy to assemble and it's the perfect size. I bought it for my family room as a stand in while I find the perfect one, but since this one is great, it may just be the permanent one.
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!
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.
