I got this for our office to go with our black leather couches. It is the perfect color and size. Looks well constructed and should survive the abuse of many feet/legs. I really like that there is storage inside. I looked into many different red ottomans and this seemed like the best value. Would buy it again.
I bought this for the foot of my bed for storage (throw blankets, sheets etc) and to add a pop of color to my bedroom. I am so pleased with this product, not only did it store quite a bit, but it looks great! I love the red and was pleasantly surprised with the quality for what I paid for it. There was no assembly and better still, I (a twentysomething female) was able to carry the box up my two floor walk up so it was not impossibly heavy. Since its so portable, I'm sure I'll also use it for extra seating in my living room, when needed. If you're thinking about it, make the move!

Perfect bright pop of color the room needed. Love it! The vibrant energy filled red color is just what we wanted. Generous amount of storage. Works well for all the extra throws and blankents that tend to accumulate during the winter months and need a good place to hide. The package arrived very quickly and was well wrapped. AND IT DOESN"T SMELL BAD! The best part is that the bench and storage area do not have ANY unpleasant odor. In the past I've purchased a number of furniture items for storage which had an unpleasant odor - including a very expensive quality dresser which had such an offensive odor it took weeks to air out so it didn't transfer the odor to my clothes. I fully expected this bench to be the same and have a stale odor inside that I would need to take time to air out. Didn't happen. This bench arrived in good shape, the color I expected and without the extra olfactory assault. Fantastic!
It is a great piece for the price. The leather is top quality and it is a perfect red color.. it looks very upscale.

I use it next to my bed as a bench more than a storage opportunity (although, just give me time!). It is very functional for that, too, and makes me smile when I see it because the color brightens up an otherwise boring bedroom. I love my new addition! The quality and price are great as well!

This bench is gorgeous. It arrived in perfect condition and appears exactly as shown in the online photo. The price is amazing for the quality furniture you get. It is a beautiful shade of red and the shape is simple and streamlined. It is very sturdy, well-made, and the hinges are robust. We are using this piece under a window in our office/library to add a splash of color and it coordinates with the giant, red clock hanging on the wall. Because the inside space is nice and deep, it is functioning as storage for all of my husband's overflow paperwork and that is A LOT of paperwork! We also use it as a bench to simply sit on when reading a book or magazine. So this bench wears three hats for us: decorative, storage, and function. I highly recommend!
We purchased another ottoman from Overstock that was a little less expensive but it was totally flimsy. When I sat on it it went "crack". This one his much, much studier .. as in what you would expect. I was afraid it wouldn't be because, in the box, it was very light. I didn't give it 5 stars as I reserve that for real rather than "bonded" leather (look it up). The color is a bit more burgundy than the picture but it looks great with our dark furniture.
Don't get me wrong this is a beautiful piece of furniture and looks and works great for storage but if you want to use it as extra seating, even temporarily you won't be happy. I orginally purchased this item hoping to store all my Rock Band guitars, drums, etc and it would have been a great product if it were a bit higher to allow for comfortable seating while playing games. I also wanted to use it for extra seating not just to put my feet on infront of my couch. In that respect it won't work because it is too short. I am 5'3" tall and it's too short for me to sit comfortably even for a short time. It might be OK for kids though. If all you want is to put your feet up or to use it only for storage than this is a great product. It is very nice looking and allows for ample storage. I wish it had been taller - that is my only complaint.
