I was looking for an ottoman to place in front of our two TV chairs. We just wanted something to throw our feet all over! With the metal frame this one has and nice, heavy leather -this is very sturdy. I did not need any storage underneath, but if you do- you could put a couple of baskets underneath. My only criticism is that this this looks larger than it is. It is only 34" square, but very roomy.
