10/3/14: So far, the two ottoman's are doing the job . both size, and overall functionality. As per prior reviews, the odor emanating from the interior is over powering. A solid day outside in the FL. sun helped to eliminate the smell (a strong chemical odor).
I'd been looking for a small bench for our master closet where my husband could sit to put on his shoes. This fit the space perfectly. The fact that I can use it for storage is an added bonus. It looks good enough to use in the den or another high-use room. The best part. I had it out of the box and ready to use in three minutes.
The only fault I can find with my ottoman (we liked it so much, we bought another one) is that the Espresso color is just a little darker than expected. It should be listed as Espresso Black. As I said, we purchased two and set them side by side. They do open and make a great storage space for throws, blankets, etc. They arrived in great condition and we are very happy with them.
Plenty of storage and nice texture. Only problem is that it didn't match a piece I ordered it for (really not even close... More black than brown, espresso or otherwise). Still kept it as I need the storage, just put it in a spot I hadn't originally planned.
Fast Delivery Packaging was great Color was what I expected it to be Very easy to assemble because all you had to do was put 4 little legs on it The espresso color goes with all the furniture in my living room - it is between a very dark brown and black I would highly recommend this ottoman
