I bought two of these ottomans to use as a coffee table. They are beautiful and exactly as pictured. The color is perfect, not too plum, not too cranberry, not too red. I don't know that eggplant is a good name since when I think of eggplant, I think deep purple. They are not deep purple. They are some shade of plummy-burgundy (wine maybe?). The color looks wrong on other sites, more like maroon. The picture on Overstock is pretty accurate, but I know that can change depending on your computer. The quality is as expected from Safavieh, and what a great price! My only complaint is one of the ottomans has a short leg, which seems impossible since there are no legs, it sits flat on the floor like pictured. However, there are 1" round plastic disks in each corner to protect the floor. One of the ottomans teeters, enough that it would be a problem on a hard wood floor, I would have to put something under the one corner to keep it level. I was going to send it back, but didn't want to deal with the hassle, and I have them on carpet so it doesn't teeter now. And I can tell that the faulty one was returned to overstock and then sent to me. The new one was packaged extremely well (plastic, covers, styrofoam, etc), the faulty one didn't have all the inside packaging. So basically someone had already returned it and overstock sold it to me anyway. Again, it is a fantastic piece, I highly recommend it!

This was my first purchase on overstock. I bought two ottomans for my living room. They're beautiful and they look very expensive. The color is more of a Merlot than eggplant. Top quality and affordable. Do not hesitate, purchase this ottoman.
