I ordered 2 of these to replace 2 older ones. The new ones appear well constructed. The top is a little smaller in diameter than the base, meaning that the tray is also smaller--this is not a major problem, especially when both trays are used, side by side. The price is fair, especially with the free shipping.
I got one of these, and it was so cool that I ordered another! Leather seems good quality, and stitching is good (no loose threads). Black-finished tray side of the flip-top is nice looking, and the storage inside is very handy! The wooden legs of the first one had small chips at the bottom corners, but I touched them up with a Sharpie and they're completely not noticeable, especially since the ottoman is on carpet so the legs sink in a bit. The second one did not have those chips but did have tiny chips on edge of tray (again easily touched up with Sharpie). Much to my relief they color-match each other perfectly. Very pleased with this item.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? great - reds are difficult, but I'd say this is "true" red, like a ripe bell pepper - not pinky, nor orangey, not super-bright
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. seems good so far
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? good
Except for the few chips on the rim of the tray, this ottoman is attractive and well made. I had hoped it would be the color shown on my computer screens--a Chinese red--but alas, it is more a true red--with not a hint of orange in the color. Still, it is attractive and fills the function I needed. I would recommend it to a friend with the caution that the color may be a problem.
