Although this a beautiful ottoman, very sturdy and well made, the COLOR IS NOT RIGHT! The photo clearly shows a light beige ottoman but the one I got was definitely Taupe which is a darker grey. Totally not even close to the photo color. I decided to keep it becuse it's big and a hassel to return but it does not match my original intention. The image color is so incredibly off that it's ridiculous. If you are looking ofr a tupe ottoman, then this is great. Linen, then look somewhere else.
The color you see in the photo is a lovely cream-ish color. The color the ottoman is actually mushroom. I was hesitant to buy it after the previous reviewer said the same thing about the color. Dang, she was right. The styling is good. Size is perfect. I am using this temporarily while my baby is in the pulling himself up phase. He banged his head on our glass coffee table so many times now I am baby proofing by using this ottoman/table. That said, the color is still off, but I will make due with it for a year.
