I'm really happy with this purchase. The coffee table is a good size for our TV room and I love being able to flip the top area to the flat side when eating. The leather looks expensive. Overall, I like the durable quality, especially with my kids using it as a "diving board" to jump onto our couch.
We bought this to replace our stone coffee table once our baby starting crawling. It worked well for that purpose and I don't have to worry about him smacking his head on the sides because it is pretty soft. I like that it is small and compact and has a lot of storage space inside. This space is a good place to hide all the toys that have accumulated in our living room. The color matches the room perfectly - it is a rich brown and appears slightly darker in person than the picture. It is a great buy for the price and doesn't look cheap at all. The reason I gave it 4 stars was because the inside of the one tray piece had two gouges on either side in the wood. It is hard to say if it came this way or happened when we flipped the tray the first time. The inside where the tray rests when not flipped is pretty soft so I'm thinking it probably came this way. Since we usually have the ottoman closed with the trays down it isn't that big of a deal. My son has just begun pulling himself up and cruising around the furniture and it is also the perfect height for that. Overall I am happy with this purchase.
We got this because our baby was getting mobile and we were afraid he was going to crack his head open on our large wooden coffee table. This product has been great. It's good quality and looks very modern. He's smacked in to it head-first several times without getting hurt!
Overall very pleased with this item. It is exactly what we were looking for - a versatile piece that serves alternately as a coffee table, foot rest, and storage bin for blankets in a small family room we use daily. The piece looks nice - only disappointment was the finish, which was a flat solid chocolate brown.
