I read the reviews about this product, and I hesitated to purchase it. I didn't want an article that looked cheap and flimsy. I bought it anywat, figuring that I could return it if it looked really bad. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. It is definitely not top quality, but the fabric feels nicer than I expected, and the chrome legs are sturdy. The velcro strips on the underneath surface are not pretty, but they don't show unless you turn the ottoman over, and they allow you to take the fabric off and wash it. I put this in my family room, next to a dark gray mid-century modern chair that is really uncomfortable unless your feet are elevated. They look great together, and I am very pleased. The room doesn't get daily use, so the ottoman should last for quite a while in there. I would not recommend this ottoman for a room that saw daily use, especially with kids or heavy-footed men around. If you're a single woman wanting an attractive, modern accent piece, this is for you!
