These are solidly built, on legs, solid enough for a 150 pound person to use the large one as a seat. The small one is pretty small, it reminds me of a small footstool/sewing kit I used to have. Still not sure what I am going to use it for. I thought the large one would be useful for toys, but now that it's here, they hold a great deal less than I thought they would. I suppose they will be hampers/seats in the bedroom. Might be good for someone who knits or crochets? The microsuede lining is very soft and would protect anything placed inside the container. The seattop is also quite padded/comfortable. Overall, not a great value for the pair; had they been two of the larger sized ones sold together, I would have said that the value was good.
I bought this duo on sale to replace a large rattan chest that my new cats were using as a scratching post. I was concerned that the two bamboo chests would be too small, but in fact, between the two, everything from the rattan chest fit. The cats are not scratching the bamboo---just sleeping on the "cushioned" top. I'll be buying two more soon.
I was looking for some sort of storage for my hats. These provide nice looking storage that can also be used for temporary seating. The large size is perfect for storing my large-brimmed summer hats; I use the small unit for smaller hats. The sage color was exactly what I expected. And, I also use the larger unit as a stool, when putting on my shoes
