I purchased 2 of these ottomans thinking they would be great side by side at the end of a king size bed but ended up using them in front of our sectional in the den in an L shape. The color is a true grape purple. I love these ottomans!!!
I bought this in hopes it would match my Cantebury Peacock/Lime rug (also found here on Overstock). It pulls out the purple in the rug perfectly. Nicely cushionied, and a good size - not too big, not too small. Love it! Received quickly.
I was VERY concerned about how the color would really look when I ordered this ottoman - but it is absolutely gorgeous!!! It's a pinky-purple, or violet according to Wikipedia. The room the ottoman's intended for is my craft room/office, which is done up in light gray, white, off-white, and pinks - it goes in there sooo well! Unfortunately, this ottoman does not store items - that would be the only suggestion or improvement I'd make. But, it's beautiful, and I LOVE the fabric - it's a soft, almost velvety microfiber - so, it's exactly what I was wanting and hoping for!!! The legs are such dark espresso that they are almost black, so they go well with the color. The legs were wrapped up pretty well, just a few scratches, and placed inside a zippered compartment underneath the seat - I don't know what could usefully be hidden in that space that wouldn't be too heavy for the underfabric, but I might think of something. Love it!
I absolutely love this ottoman! It's so comfortable to put your feet up onto and it's a great accent piece in my living room. My only complaint is that the legs are not made to hold more than 100 pounds of weight. I sat on it for a minute to tie my shoes, and one of the legs started to buckle. I was able to get off of it in time before the leg actually broke, but it's a little bent now. Also, I have to give a warning to everyone who visits that the ottoman is for feet only, not butts. For the price though, this ottoman was worth it even with a feet only policy.
This is exactly what I was looking for - a pretty, soft, comfy purple ottoman that can be a footstool or a seat. It is so easy to assemble (just have to attach the legs) and it looks great. It looks even better than in the photo. I needed color in my home and got it in something I will definitely use.
