Ottoman is pretty, but not very functional. It has a hump, which doesn't allow you to set a tray on it. Even a cell phone and TV remote slide off the top. Also, it is a little higher than our sofa, so putting up your feet gets unconfortable very quickly. You could remove the lower set of feet under the shelf so that it's not so high, but then you'd lose the funtionality of having a shelf. The space between the shelf and the bottom of the ottoman is also not very much - only about 5.5 inches, so only shallow storage baskets will fit. Only recommended this ottoman for looks, but not for storage, comfort or function.

The Elements Ottoman was taupe and not gray however it meshed well with the living room decor. The quality was top-notch as: the fabric was thick and durable and the wood heavy, nicely detailed and full of character. It only garnered four stars because the way it was packaged caused the underlining of the ottoman top to tear. Since the tear was in no way visible it wasn't worth returning. All in all it's a unique piece and adds a designer touch to the living room.

I had two chairs that I thought this would match and complement so I risked buying it online without seeing it in person... It turned out better than I expected. A very quality piece of furniture, easy to put together and arrived quickly. Perfect in every aspect. Thank you Overstock!
The ottoman arrived quickly and looked just like the picture on the website. Assembly was easy and took about 5 minutes. It is the show piece of my living room. I could not be happier with the purchase.

Before ordering this ottoman I read every single review. Seems that there was a lot of complaints about the color of the ottoman not being as pictured or as described. An accurate description of the color of fabric is a true taupe. It is not gray, purple, or anything other than taupe. The base is similar to a natural colored barnwood with a light whitewash finish. It is not gray as pictured. Color was not an issue for me because I planned to recover the top in leather and paint the base if necessary. I ordered this ottoman strictly based on the PRICE, DESIGN, and QUALITY of construction. I have looked at hundreds of ottomans and was planning to have one custom made until I saw this one. You can not find an ottoman of this quality for the price. The base is perfect for what I needed and the price is so inexpensive that I can afford to make the changes necessary to create a custom ottoman.
What a wonderful piece! So happy with my purchase! Def recommend it!

I don't usually bother to write reviews but after searching high and low for an ottoman like this I was so pleased to find it at Overstock.com. The ottoman is very similar to others on the market for $1200 - $1600. It is solid wood, well-made and designed, and packed extremely well to prevent any damage. The light gray linen-like fabric is very pretty and coordinates with most neutral colors...I paired it with a chocolate sofa and a tan melange sisal rug, and it looks great! I would only use it as a bench for extra seating in a pinch as it is rather hard, but it is perfectly comfortable for our feet while watching T.V. and looks elegant with a silver tray on it. Very, very pleased with this purchase!
I love this ottoman. I was very nervous buying it from Overstock given it was a centerpiece of our living room. I had ordered a different one from a small furniture store for $XXX I got a call and they were out of stock. My son (who was 12 months at the time) was bumping into the coffee table and I wanted something more comfortable for him so I bought this. You would NEVER know it is so expensive. This item could sell for $XXX-XXX elsewhere. People always compliment it and never believe it is from overstock. Great customer service and very sturdy product.
Color is great....I would describe as mushroom colored. Great neutral for any room. I left the bottom shelf off and I just love it. Mine does not have a hump in the middle like another reviewer noted. I have a large tray sitting on top for drinks and magazines, etc.
The ottoman is exactly as pictured, and was the easiest piece of furniture in the world to put together! Literally all you have to do is twist on the legs, no tools needed! I do wish the ottoman was a little fluffier/softer for resting your feet on, but it does the job. It looks great and stylish, and it's a great value for the price it is. Would definitely recommend. I know other people said they thought the color was a little different than the picture, but I don't see a difference at all. Love it! We have a white couch and it looks great with it!
This ottoman looks exactly like the photos. The white stained oak allows it to blend in with a variety of wood finishes. fabric is taupe. It is comfortable to rest your feet and flat enough to set a tray with beverages/snacks. My only complaint is that the fabric is starting to pill after about 3 months of use, which seems kind of odd given the price of the item. I think the fuzz balls could be removed with a razor, or another de-pilling trick, but it is sort of annoying to deal with.
This is a very nice item. It was easy to assemble. The color of both the fabric and the finish stain is a true neutral taupe and I appreciate that as a designers since it can go almost anywhere and in any setting. The Workmanship and style is good. It has a lot of character and rich feeling for the price paid. I like the option to have the shelf below or not on the ottoman. It is heavy and will stay exactly where it is placed so it is not the kind of ottoman you want to roll around a lot. As a matter of fact there are NO casters and that is the only thing I may change. I may add some small casters though I know it is a big enough and heavy enough piece that you DO NOT want it to roll aound but, have it stay in place where it is positioned.
The piece arrived and I was shocked how heavy and solid it is (about 70lbs the box said). Solid wood, easy to put together. Looks amazing. Use it as my coffee table. Its is very sturdy. Do not recommend to buy if your looking to sit on it/comfort. Highly recommend.
This didn't last but a few months. If you have children that will actually use this ottoman by sitting on it, laying on it, or even a few jumps...do not purchase this because the buttons all popped and ripped the fabric. If you want it for show, it is actually very nice and of good quality.
The ottoman is exactly as pictured as is the color. It is firm enough to support a tray and vase of flowers but soft enough to put your feet on or double as extra seating. The piece is solid too: 70lbs! Shipping was fast, and assembly took five minutes. Couldn't be happier!
We were searching for quite some time and either the prices were ridiculous or reviews were not complimentary. This ottoman is sturdy, color is perfect and price was right. As always with Overstock, no problem with delivery. this was easy assemble, is good for extra seating or to put your feet up. Great for a beach decor

This is a wonderful addition to our living room. The overall look and quality of this item compliments the sophisticate lodge look of the room. Covered tufted buttons and wooden legs makes this item appear to be of a higher value. The additional second shelf makes the item extremely functional. Very please with this item.
