After much research, I decided to purchase this ottoman and am glad I did. It arrived on July 2, 2015 (just one week to deliver) and is beautiful! No assembly needed other than to screw on the four legs, which took 4 minutes. The color is true to its description (espresso = very dark brown), the leather feels very luxurious, and the storage space is generous. I especially like the gas powered lift. This is exactly what I was looking for in an ottoman/coffee table and I would highly recommend it!
Extremely pleased with this multi-functional piece! Arrived quickly and in excellent condition, thanks to the sturdy packaging. Screwing on legs was all that was necessary. Matches my dark brown leather sofa perfectly! Ample storage and easy-open lid are wonderful features. Trays on top make it a perfect table. Only minor negative comment is that lid is just a hair off center when closed. Relatively unnoticeable. Nice low luster sheen; only dusting is required. Perfect piece instead of the coffee table for which I was originally searching.
The storage is great and it doesn't slam closed on the little fingers in our house. It's a firm seat and it looks classy! My husband did have to tinker with the lid a little bit because it didn't close correctly (exactly right), but it wasn't a big deal. I love it!
After ordering this ottoman, I thought it would be too small for our family room. But was very pleased when it arrived as it was the perfect size - not too big and not too small. There was a scratch on one of the legs, but no major deal ... we just screwed it on and put the scratch on the inside where it wouldn't be visible! It looks great in the space and matches surrounding decor perfectly!
Another hiding place for my 9 year grandson! He loves folding himself up inside the ottoman. I was surprised at the color, its true espresso. The legs were easy to install and The buttons on top are installed tightly. I'm truly happy with this product.
This ottoman is such a deal! It's sturdy, looks great, has lots of storage and you can't beat the price! The color is exactly as I had hoped; leaning more toward black than brown. In the short time we've had the ottoman it has been climbed on by both a toddler and dogs and looks like it is right out of the box. The height is great for both sitting or putting your feet up. I would absolutely recommend this ottoman.
This ottoman is superb. It looks great when closed. Its interior can hold a ton of stuff (book, DVDs, laptop, ipad and more) and the qualify of the hinges to open and close the ottoman are top notch. We bought this to replace a traditional coffee table and it has delivered splendidly. I would highly recommend this ottoman to anyone.
