All in all this seems to be exactly the size I needed for my room. It looks nice but like I said when the trays are turned up they do not sit well in the unit.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not sure if I like the way the trays sit when turned over, they tend to tilt, have to be careful when putting a beverage on them.

I am very pleased with the purchase of this item. Its the perfect size for my small living room. The storage space inside, is well enough space for my throw pillows and the trays are a plus for placement of my remotes and/or beverages for my guests. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a ottoman that does more then just looks good and store things.
Overall it does the job well. The fake leather is kinda slippery. The trays fit well, although there is some sanding defect in the holes and the wooden feet are scratched up. Nothing I wouldn't expect out of cheap china made furniture. The problem I had was ordering this and the wait for it to ship. My first order was cancelled to inventory error. So I looked up the ottoman the next day and it was still being advertised on overstock. I contacted customer service and he told me to resubmit the order. After I had resubmit, I waited 3 weeks for it to ship. I contacted customer service once a week asking when it would ship and kept getting told it takes up to 5 business days to ship and then on the third contact I was told 10 business days. You would think overstock would expedite my shipping, but no. Also overstock didn't fulfill there advertised ship before Christmas promise. And when it arrived, there was some puncture in the box (probably due to transit) leaving a small, unnoticeable cut on the side. I'm giving this four stars because the ottoman itself is decent, but the service from overstock was unacceptable and a major inconvenience.
A well constructed piece, light yet no qualms about using it to seat a couple people. Not that I usually buy things at full price but this would be well worth even the non-promotional retail price. When cushion side up there's really nothing I could complain about. My one nit is that individually the 3 trays are pretty small (internally ~12"x14"x2") so as a coffee table replacement it's not very good for larger items like coffee table book or larger plates/platters the depth of the trays exacerbates the problem. Having said that, three trays is nice as it gives you the option of reversing the middle tray/cushion giving you a mixed use that still looks good. (Right now, we're going cushion-tray-cushion. If I could tweak the design a bit, I would make the trays shallower, and the entire piece maybe about half a foot longer. For "Extra Large" it looks a skosh small in front of a 3-person couch.
My boyfriend and I had been searching for MONTHS for the perfect coffee table/foot rest/ storage for his "man cave." Everything was so expensive or poorly made or the shipping was outrageous! Finally after pinning, and web browsing, I happened upon this ottoman and the priced wowed me! The color was perfect, storage capacity was just what he needed, and having the flip top so he could put his coffee, beer, etc on top while resting with his feet up comfortably sealed the deal. We are so pleased with the product!
We previously had a square ottoman like this (faux leather with storage and trays on the underside of the tops) at our last home that we loved, but had seen LOTS of use. I had been searching far and wide for something similar that would fit in a smaller space. This one is perfect! Well constructed, looks like real leather and moves easily for vacuuming. We are extremely happy with our purchase. :)
