I was looking for something to put on my ottoman that I could put glasses on and have them not topple over. The second I opened this, I wondered if they sent me the right product. This is absolutely gorgeous. I feel like the rest of my furniture and accessories need to step it's game up. This definitely added some luxury to my living room. It is sleek and beautifully finished. The photo does not do it justice. However, I may have not paid close enough attention or maybe it is not stated but the pamphlet that came the tray said to not put food on it- decorative purposes only. I never put food directly on top of it but I think it is something to be aware of if you plan on using it for your kid's Cheetos.
