We just purchased this ottoman because we were trying to get away from the solid surface coffee tables, and were looking for some storage. This ottoman arrived in fabulous condition, and holds A LOT. The top of this thing rises easily, and you don't have to worry about little kids getting fingers smashed in there, it is very safe for them too.
We love this storage ottoman! We bought it as a "toy box" for all the living room kid toys and it's perfect! Huge storage capacity! It fits a Bumbo chair easily and all our baby's toys plus our cozy blankets! It's made really well and has nice hydraulic hinges so no fingers get pinched and the top never falls when we're digging around for a new toy. It's perfect!
This was the first furniture purchase I have made off of Overstock.com and am very pleased with this product. I've been looking for a square, brown, leather storage ottoman for a while, and Overstock.com had several options to choose from...which is a lot better than the options I was seeing at local furniture stores. Wasn't sure how the quality would be since I was ordering online, but I'm really happy with it. It's a great accent piece for the price.
We have two young children, so it was tricky to find an ottoman that was both beautiful and safe for the children. Amazingly, this ottoman fits both of my requirements. The color is very dark brown (almost black) and the mechanism that doesn't allow the top to crash down on little fingers is very strong and reliable. An adult has no trouble closing the storage top, but a young child is definitely not strong enough. Fabulous product for families or anyone who wants a comfortable, gorgeous and functional piece! I highly recommend this ottoman!
Beautiful ottoman! The look is very rich -- construction is excellent and so roomy for storage. Well packaged at arrival. The price is excellent. The only reminder is that these cannot be returned -- so do your homework on this before placing your order, like measuring and holding the pic of ottoman in your intended room.
I received this ottoman very quickly... within one week of ordering it. It is very nice and looks great in my living room. At 31", it is a bit smaller than other ottmans I have viewed (typically 35") and that is why I chose it. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
The Ottoman we bought was Great, looks wonderful in our setting area. The packing of the Ottoman was packed better than anything we have ever ordered., came on time and we will buy from you again.The storage area is really big and safe for our Grandchildren. The top stays open incase they would enter it and wanted to play inside, that's right it is that big. The color looks great with with our Leather Counch. Thanks so much, Sandy
I recently purchased this ottoman after looking for similar types in local furniture stores. The ottoman was a great price and less than half of the price of the ones that we had seen. It was shipped very quickly and was a much better quality than I had expected. I would definitely recommend this item.
I had been looking for a storage ottoman to fit my U shaped couch for a while and then I found this! Perfect fit, plenty of leg room and great storage space. Looks just like picture. It was delivered within a week of ordering and came in perfect condition. So happy with my purchase.
Yes, it's dark. It won't match your brown leather couch. But so what? Matchy-matchy is out anyway. It's expresso. If you have true expresso leather it will look fine. But the quality is quite good. I could find none of the problems some of the more negative reviews gave this ottoman. The legs are fine, it came in perfect condition, the hinge is sturdy and safe for children. I have this in my main livingroom. It's too good to go in a playroom in my opinion. All in all, I am quite happy with the purchase.

We received our ottoman and right away I was pleased. I put all the kids board games inside of it that had been on shelves in behind a glass door on the entertainment center. I was always afraid they were going to break the glass because they would whip the door open and closed to get the games. The ottoman has been great, especially since the closing mechanism has a shock absorber on it. It took a little while to get the boys to look and make sure there weren't any fingers resting on the edge when closing it. It has held up amazingly well for 3 little boys (between ages of 2 and 6) playing on it all the time. We don't let them jump on it or stand on it, but they are allowed to run their hot wheels on it for races. Even minor scratches don't really show. Great product. Would recommend!
