Pretty much exactly what I expected from the photo and other reviews. Keep in mind two things: 1. this is bi-cast leather (not genuine leather), so it has more of a vinyl feel; 2. it's not a very big ottoman -- take a close look at the dimensions. We use it as extra seating (for one person), and to store blankets/throws. Overall, it seems to be made very well (seams, hinges, and feet are all solid).
This was a gift for our son for Christmas. We were all very pleased with the ottomon. It looks great, is well constructed and the storage area is generous. I looked all over for a ottomon that was bigger than a cube and was reasonably priced. They are hard to find. No regrets on this purchase and I know it will be used for years to come.
We were so pleasantly surprised with everything regarding this purchase! the ottoman is beautiful! The leather is beautiful and sturdy. The inside storage compartment is very large and fully lined. It is perfect for storing a stack of magazines and a blanket. We were also lucky in that it is a perfect match to our espresso leather couch. It is very solidly made - especially the hinges on the lift-top. Plus, it arrived fully assembled and wrapped so tightly that it was in pristine condition. Just unwrap it and plop it down wherever you want it! We're very impressed.
Very nice craftsmanship. Nice feel of the leather. Looks elegant.

My husband said, "Samantha, why do you need a storage ottoman? It will only give you an excuse to buy more stuff, just because you have somewhere to store it." I said to him, "Well, John - it will give me somewhere to throw your dirty socks that you always seem to pull off on the sofa, leaving them scattered on the floor." That shut him up! Love this ottoman.
Really good value for a storage ottoman, even a bi-cast. Photo makes it look more distressed and worn which is the look I was going for but this is harder and shiny in person. Top is not as hard as some "cocktail ottomans" but definitely could be softer if you are using for an actual footrest. We bought slides from the hardware store and attached to legs so it moves easliy on carpet. Was very difficult to find an ottoman that was 15" or under. This was pretty much the only option other than a custom made one so we're keeping this one.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems to be good.Haven't done a lot of opening and closing of storage so not sure how it will hold up but seems pretty sturdy from the start.
My grandmother is in a nursing home with little space to keep her own things. I bought this for her not only as an ottoman but for storage of her blankets and slippers. It seems to be proving very useful and it cleans up very easily - just a swipe of a damp cloth.
I like this piece. It looks nice, and is good quality, although not leather and it doesnt look like leather, it is still decent. The top opens and closes easily, and stays open, which is a good feature. It holds a BUNCH of DVDs and serves as extra seating if needed. Exactly what I wanted!

I had never ordered anything from Overstock before, and I was doubtful that this ottoman would be good quality for the price. It is so much nicer than I expected - rich brown color, well made, good hinges so it stays open until you pull it shut. I would definitely recommend to a friend - it looks like we spent a lot more than we did!
This ottoman is the perfect size for my family room. I love the storage for a pillow and small blanket. The leather is soft and very rich looking. I am totally satisfied with the quality and price and would recommend it to anyone looking for a storage ottoman.
I was overall very pleased with the quality of this ottoman. The leather is smooth, thick and durable but does not have that buttery soft texture of some leathers. The hinged top is very nice quality with a small compartent for storing magazines, remotes etc. but not big enough for a throw blanket. The color isn't what I would call espresso brown though...it really borders more on black. I have shopped around for ottomans and for the money this is an excellent value.
We have had this ottoman in our home for over five years now, and it still looks great. It takes so much abuse from out 75 lb dog and our toddler, and is only starting to show the slightest bit of wear. This was a great purchase! It provides storage for things we want to keep away from the baby, it's soft, so much easier to deal with than end tables with sharp edges, and it provides extra seating when the house is full! I would recommend this to anyone, so much better quality than similar products you see in stores.
The color is so very close to my Leather Recliner, which I have had for a long time. Look we all know that it's not real leather but it is a smart looking piece and well made for sure. I've had overstock.com send me a few requests for a review and I wanted to wait a while before I wrote said review to be certain of my satisfaction. I'm pleased to say that I am Satisfied. I would recommend this Ottoman. I"m 6'4", 215 lbs, sit on it often and no problem. OK then that's it for me. Take care all.
Love this ottoman. Looks great and is exactly what was described in the website description.
