The description was unclear considering it said "leather" and looked more natural than the other ottomans for sale in the picture. This is bonded leather and is a very solid dark brown. It doesn't have the natural tones like the picture. Overall it's lovely and very sturdy and the perfect size for in front of my very large couch. The hinges are sturdy and better hidden than in the picture, which was a nice surprise.
Description says "leather". Picture looks very much like real leather with "grain"/character. NOT the case. What is delivered looks a lot like bonded leather and is a very standard/boring/uniform dark brown. Sturdy construction and great design. But very disappointed in the deceptive advertising.
