This storage ottoman is not brown. It is more of a dark, military greenish color. There are some dark brown accents in the floral design, but if you want a brown item, this is not the one for you. That being said, I do like the design. The floral pattern looks William Morris inspired. Also, the ottoman feels sturdy and allows for storage of many items. I was able to fit two down throws and two regular throws in it and there is still room to spare. The hinging mechanism works very well and smoothly.
The "Cocoa Brown" ottoman is most definitely Olive Green, rather then brown. Functionally, it works well and meets expectations, but it is certainly not the color depicted in the online picture. I thought perhaps we received the wrong color, but the tag reads "Cocoa Brown". Not too happy, but not unhappy enough to ship a 4 foot ottoman back to the manufacturer.
I will agree with the other reviewers, this ottoman is not quite cocoa color. It is more of a deep olive, with a brown hue. However, for the room I wanted to use it in, it's exactly color I needed, and it looks great! The ottoman itself is made very well. It's quite roomy inside, and the outside fabric is very durable. The dark chunky wooden legs really add to its look. I absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone.
