I read all of the reviews for every ottoman with trays out there . . . all of them. I was looking for something sturdy that would hold up if my 6 yr old pounced on it. I believe I have found it. The inside is supported by cross supports - each quarter is seperate. The trays themselves are sturdy and sit on top of the supports. The exterior is true black, not shiney and well constructed. While we have had the 'just for feet' lecture, I feel confident that this piece will survive the occational pounce when I'm not looking. :)
We were very happy with this ottoman. I was looking for one with trays, and I didnt find to many options, so I wasnt sure if I would really like it after we ordered it, but we have been using it now for about 2 weeks, and we love it. It is very sturdy and the trays are really nice. When we received it there were 2-3 marks/scraches on the trays, that was the only bad thing but they are small so it is okay. Other than that it is a really good size and looks nice in our living room.
I had shopped everywhere for an ottoman like this. This is the best quality for the price I have found. Shipped within a few days, came already assmebled and looking great! Material is not as shiny as it looks in the picture which is a plus. Matches my stuff perfectly, very comfortable and sturdy! Great peice!!
We've had this ottoman for almost 2 years. I love it!!!! We use the trays to eat on sometimes, or just use it to prop our feet on. It's very sturdy. Our kids sit on it, jump on it, and lay on it. With all of the action it gets in our family room, there are no tears or scratches on it. We just wipe it down every blue moon. You won't be disappointed with this storage ottoman. It looks good and it holds up!!
I have a storage space problem, so this ottoman is exactly what I was looking for... a cushy place to prop my feet, a flat surface for stuff, and a storage bin. It's exactly as pictured and fits perfectly with my other furnishings! It's well made and looks great. I love it.
Top is firm enough to securely rest glasses of a beverage on the cushion, but plenty comfortable for sitting on as well. I haven't actually turned the cushions over for the tray but it's handy to have that option. I keep extra bedding and blankets for the guest bed/couch. And it looks like in my living room, fills the open area perfectly. It is heavy enough that if you put your feet on it there is no sliding, but not so heavy it would be impossible to move around if needed.
Shipped very well packaged and in perfect condition, although it did arrive a bit late. Very happy with the piece, nice looking, sturdy but comfortable. Good amount of storage and the trays really come in handy without looking "cheap" Very happy with the purchase, very inexpensive compared to all the ottomans I looked at in the furniture stores
For the price I paid with a $* off coupon, it was definitely worth it. It was shipped to my door with a few scratches, but not noticeable. Had one small tear in leather. Not sure how long it will hold up, but it was the right size and height.
