I have developed the habit of shopping other sites, then coming back to Overstock and finding the same or similar item (often with a very similar name to the retail big box store's item) and saving a bundle of cash, minus even more with Overstock coupons (twice with the help of Customer Service: thanks, Lee and Liam!!!). This is an excellent example. Found this item (but much larger--in fact, too large for the area I wanted to use it.) on Ballard Designs with more color options. I compared construction, fabrics, and reviews and went ahead and ordered this one, saving a huge chunk of change. This item is solidly built, meticulously tufted, in a very nice nubby linen fabric. However, I deducted a star only because this is much more brownish gray than it looked on my computer screen. Still an excellent neutral for my beachy themed family room. The wood does look almost fake with the grain and finish, and I may end up buying some liming wax (not on O.co...yet, lol) and redoing that part, but I will live with the finish for a time first. Excellent value and quality. Thanks, Overstock.
I order a lot from Overstock.com but this ottoman was a little of a disappointment. First of all the fabric color is not the purple look you see in the picture. It is a deep grayish-mauve color that has just a small amount of purple hue in it. When you look at it you don't see the purple. However, when you place it near something with some purple, like pillows on a couch, then it seems to work and blend in pretty well. Secondly the legs are kind of cheesy looking. Their shape is fine, but the grain of the wood and stain appear too fabricated. The good things about this ottoman are that the fabric is tight and looks like Linen and the tufted part is well stitched. I have kept this ottoman because it is very comfortable to rest your feet on and it's just the perfect weight if you need to move it around a bit. It does look nice, but I can not give it more than an average rating because of the color of the fabric and the wood grain of the legs.
Very pretty ottoman. However, the color is much darker than the picture. The ottoman is almost a dark purple color.
