This ottoman is slightly lower in height than others I had looked at which was good for me, so take measurements if needed. It has a very textured tweed look which gives it some dimension. I don't see any cream in it. Rather beige, light beige and streaks of blue/grey. My living room is grey, black and light pine furniture so it ties the room in perfectly. The top is wide enough to hold a small tray for drinks, etc. and an average size laptop with ease. It is light enough to move around if needed while empty. I was worried about the brown legs and was going to change them to black but on my shag rug they can barely be seen. It has one tiny snag on the side of the lid but it blends in with the rough tweed fabric so it doesn't bother me. I don't expect things to be impeccable. I got it for a great price so thank you to overstock once again.
Ugh...mine has an odor. Old basement smell. Not to tall and doesn't take up a lot of space...the golden wheat color matches our furniture. I really like the style and size of this ottoman but the one I received has an odor. The lid smells not the base. I would had given five stars if it didn't smell. I am going to try a couple cleaning tricks and let it air out.
We've had this ottoman for almost a year with lots of use and it's held up superbly. It does have some light blue and green threads that show up more than indicated in the pictures, which look completely tan. These colors actually work well with the chair I have it paired with, but in general I thought it'd be good information to share.
I was looking for a good sized neutral colored ottoman and this fit the bill. And it offers some storage to boot. The only thing that bothered me was that one of the reviewers mentioned something about a cancer causing agent used in its manufacture.
This is a great tufted ottoman in a color that goes with almost anything. I love the storage that it also has. The only problem is that a few of the tufted areas the fabric is a little loose, but not enough to send it back for another one. Also, our two little dogs love sleeping on and it's easy for them to jump up on. The price was fantastic and believe me I checked many on-line stores as well as walking into furniture stores.
