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.
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.
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.
Hi rrlphd, thank you for your inquiry. This product comes in roll form like a fabric rather than the shape of an animal hide. It is really a plastic product that contains leather but in a manner where the customer neither can see nor feel the leather. The product uses the lower-value and lower-cost split leather as the backing of the product and creates a finish by applying a sheet of plastic on the front surface, usually polyurethane (PU), to provide the color, texture and strength. This product tends to be fairly stiff and is usually produced in dark colors only.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 16, 2013
