Needed an ottoman to work with a futon. This one is great. Like having the tray feature. One caveat. The color is not gray. It's a neutral sort of taupe that works well, though I was a bit taken aback when I unpacked it as I was expecting a somewhat different shade. No worries, though. The color fits right in to the surrounding furniture.
If you are looking for a light gray-ish ottoman as described, I hate to say it, but this is not it. It's definitely a more brown/gray like the other reviews stated, but it is much darker than it appears on the picture. I might be able to make it work in another room, but it clashes with my living room right now. Otherwise, it appears sturdy and well-made. Disappointed in the color, which was the main reason I bought this particular one.
Very sturdy, with nice fabric. My only complaints are that 1) it's a little difficult to take off lid because of its weight and tight fit, and 2) it's more. Of a browning color than a true grey. Does not quite match my grey sofa and rug. Overall, really nice looking useful ottoman. Does quadruple duty -- seating, footrest, tray table and storage.
I ordered 3 of these, and they are perfect. They are a perfect color, a mix of grey and taupe or a griege. They worked perfectly with my decor. They have storage which is always great. They are very sturdy, people can sit on them with no problems, but they are not too heavy to move around. the tray top is great too but they do scratch pretty easily. That is the only negative I have to say about these ottomans.
All in all this is a good product. I bought three and after a few weeks one of them is showing some wear - but we abused it somewhat.

Perfect subtle gray color for my living room---It could work with almost any color wall/furniture color combo due to subtle color and specs of color in fabric...Small, but that is what I wanted, and I LOVE the fact that you flip the top and have a tray for a bowl of popcorn or whatever...

This is the perfect ottoman for our newly remodeled master bath! It has wonderful storage for holding extra bath towels, which is one of the reasons I ordered it. The gray is a warmer tone but works perfectly for our space; fabric has a little bit of a tweed texture. It also is very sturdy when we sit on it. The style has a timeless traditional design which makes it work easily with any space; it really made a dramatic change to our bathroom. We absolutely love it!

It's the perfect ottoman. It arrived prompty and was well packaged with a protective cover. This piece is well made, it has a nice storage compartment for kids toys, and it has a functional tray. The ottoman has a balanced design, i.e. it has weight to it so its stable and doesn't feel cheap, yet is a light and easy-to-move piece of furniture. I was impressed how securely the lid fit in place and did not wiggle when positioned as a foot rest or a serving tray. Overall, we're very happy with the purchase and can't believe it was such a bargain! One point, this ottoman had a lot more charcoal dark grey overtone to it than pictured. I agreed to purchase this color and was worried it would look as pictured, with more light or white gray tones. But, i was pleasantly surprised when it arrived and was darker.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? a tad darker than pictured. This was actually ideal because my husband an i debated b/w this color and the charcoal. we ordered the harrison grey and i was secretly agonizing it would look washed out with the beige carpet. But, it stands out well and pulls out the darker grey tones in the room.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. well constructed and solid piece; the lid fits snuggly in place and doesn't wiggle and it feels nicely weighted; the top cushion is very firm and comfortable for propping your feet on it.
