We were looking for a bench with storage for our small foyer. The leather ottomans were a good choice becuase of their looks, durability and storage inside. Just to make it clear to others the size of this leather ottoman is small, as stated in the product dimensions, and is exactly what we wanted. There are other longer versions of these benches which may be more appropriate if size is not a constraint. The size is perfect to sit on and put your shoes/boots on and off. We haven't decided what to put inside yet, but the compartment would be perfect for hats, gloves, scarves, and slippers, or even a bookbag. The interior is lined with a soft, black felt-like fabric.
The qualityof the bicast leather is excllent. When I read about what bicast leather was, it fit perfectly for our applicatino to use the bench in a high traffic foyer. The leather is taut, well-sewn together, and the color matches thoughout. It has a glossy finish that is smooth and does not show scatches. We have other leather furniture that is supple, but scatches. Just want to make that clear for others. Another thing, the leather wraps over the sides of the interior, so that the lining doesn't start at the edges. This provides a very nice finished look to the piece. The hinges are metal and have a brass/copper color. They are sturdy and stiff (i.e. they hold the lid open at all angles).
The feet are black painted wood and are square in shape. They have a hard rubber foot in the center. We have the bench on a wood floor, and it slid whenever you sat down/got up from it. I installed the small double-stick furniture feet felt circles on the bottom, and they provide enough friction with the floor so that it does not move at all now! If being used on a carpet, this would not be a problem, though on wood floors, the rubber is too hard to provide adequate friction. The rubber feet did not show any signs of scratching the wood floors or leaving a mark.
Overall, this is a great small leather storage ottoman, which arrived without any defects and is of high quality. I would recommend this prduct if it fits your needs.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was as expected. It is a Dark brown, not just brown.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The stiching is aligned, the hinges open and close with ease, the leather is bicast and has shown no scratches. Product was shipped with no defects.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Excellent. I got exactly what I was expecting.
I wanted an ottoman bench at the door coming in from the garage, but the space is small and also there is a bedroom right off to the side, so I could not get anything too big because it would block the door. This is the perfect size. I wish the height was higher because we are a very tall family, but it works for sitting to put shoes on or take them off.

Hello vanderhoof! I love this bench! Bi-cast leather is leather backing covered with a layer of polyurethane that is applied to the surface and then embossed. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 28, 2013
