Thanks to everyone who took time to review this and other ottomans here at overstock.com, I thought I had a good idea of what type of ottoman I wanted. Still, I prefer to shop locally and hit the local furniture stores looking for a coffee table ottoman. I was initially interested in the table-with-an-upholstered/leather-top look; however, most of the brick and mortar stores only carried the 'grandma/grandpa' shapeless foot stool kind of ottoman. And the color and size options were also paltry -- boring oatmeal family colors or crazy patterns and sizes that were too large for my needs. A couple of stores carried selections with a little bit of style to them, but I felt that the asking prices were ridiculous. I mean, why does a glorified foot stool cost as much as my lei zee boi recliner? Anyway, I re-shuffled my priorities and began to consider more traditional ottomans such as this one. I liked the idea of adding a punch of color to my living room via the ottoman, I liked the clean shape of this one, and I really liked the price. (Although I was a bit skeptical after seeing the prices around town, thinking 'what's wrong with this ottoman that overstock sells it so cheaply?') I chose the wine colored one. Like an earlier poster noted, the color is a deep burgundy, which is just perfect for my room. I was afraid that it would look too wee in front of my 80" long sofa, but it is perfectly proportioned - length, width, and height. And like someone else also noted, while no one will mistake this for a high end piece of furniture - it isn't lux - I don't think it looks cheap either. Shipping was lightening quick (I ordered very late Sunday night/Monday morning, and it arrived Wednesday afternoon), nothing was damaged, and it took minutes to affix the legs. No bad smell either. My only concern is regarding how this piece will do long-term. The material does not seem to be all that thick and I wonder how it will weather extended use - if the material and/or seams will stretch under the weight of resting feet. Only time will tell, but until then I remain very happy with my purchase.
I loved everything about this online but when it arrived, the interior space doesn't hold much. It only has about 4 or 5 inches deep for storage because the lid (which is not hollow) takes up half the height. If that doesn't matter to you, you'll probably like the ottoman, but for me it doesn't do the job. I'll have to send it back. So disappointing.
It's not a luxury item or anything, but this ottoman is a steal at this size and price. Love the different color options. I got mine in brick and it is very understated but gives the room a pop of color. Awesome size, almost the size of my old coffee table and the storage fits everything you could want to fit in there. Microfiber is ideal-just wipe the mess away with a damp cloth. I have nothing bad to say about this ottoman.
I really like this ottoman. The color (I ordered the burgundy one) is vibrant and just as expected from the website example. I put it in a study that has a sofa bed in it, it's perfect as an ottoman and the storage is plentiful. The only reason I did not give it an overall rating of 5 stars is because it would be nicer and more convenient if it had casters (wheels) on it for easier movement when necessary.
The Ottoman itself is a good product and it looks similar to the picture. My ISSUE is with OVERSTOCK. My ottoman had a stain that looked like someone had attempted to remove. I'm guessing that someone purchased it, stained it, and returned it, and overstock had the balls to send it to me anyway. I didn't see the term REFURBISHED in the advertisement. For any working mom, having to go through the trouble of repackage a huge piece of furnature and then haul it to a UPS is a major pain. I'm offended that overstock would knowingly put me in a position and i'll think twice before purchasing from here again.
the size is great, we use is as an ottoman for our couch as well as a coffee table. I ordered the chocolate color and found it fairly true to the color swatch. I like the storage. Fits two large blankets well. It stays open when opened and doesn't slam shut which is really nice since we have kids around. If you're looking for a cozy family friendly cocktail ottoman this is a good choice.
This is perfect for what we wanted! Very comfortable as an extension of our sofa and a great height, almost even with our sofa. A perfect choice. The microsuede is of the same quality of our sofa which we purchased earlier at a furniture store, there is really no difference and we lucked out on the color. The khaki is as pictured, on the light side of tan/bone color.
This ottomen is the perfect size. I was replacing a larger Faux leather ottoman that split after a years use and this ottoman seems like the fabric will stand up much better. It is also a standard size and finding a slip cover for it should be no problem. I like that it is light weight and easy to move. The storage is great and holds the throws we use on chilly nights. I only wish it came in a darker shade of brown that matched my couch and loveseat better (chocolate). Great deal for the price and a nice addition to our livingroom.

This ottoman was a perfect solution for our family as our son has reached the "cruising" stage along the furniture, but our old coffee table was unstable and had many sharp corners. Quality: excellent, especially considering the price. This is a sturdy unit without being too heavy, and the workmanship matches anything similar we saw at local furniture stores for a similar item. Yes, if you went with a leather ottoman, it would be higher quality and more durable - but that is the nature of the product.Style: What you see in the description is what you get (in whatever color you ordered). Keep in mind that microfiber, by its nature, means muted colors. That said, we ordered the "Wine" color, and it's very rich and true to the description. But you will not get a true dark version of any color; they will all seem a little washed out because of the nature of the fabric. Use: This is PERFECT for our need. The top cushion is enough that my son can "cruise" along it without us fearing he'll hurt his head if he slips for a second. It is a great height for putting up our feet - but this will depend on your couch. Ours is pretty low to the ground, so I would imagine it might be lower than other people's couches, but I can't imagine it being higher than many. It's also very lightweight in my opinion for an ottoman, so it's easy to move around. The storage is a great size for being inside an ottoman. I thought it would be miniscule after reading a few reviews here: it's only 6" deep, but it's almost the full size of the ottoman. We put a very small stool, remotes, coasters, a few books, and a handful of other things that were living beneath our coffee table in it. It won't be a toy chest or major storage area, but it can definitely keep a few things out of the way - including a pillow or two and a blanket if desired. Many of the ottomans I saw in the stores had no storage at all, so this is definitely a plus. One thing about using it for resting plates/glasses on: the cushion on top does slope a little bit outward, so it's not perfectly level. You can rest things on it, but you'll need a coaster or something to help keep open drinks flat. Shipping: Amazing! We ordered on a holiday, and the order stayed in a "processing" status for a few days. I chatted with Overstock about when it might ship. They were extremely helpful and let me know it would ship the next day. Standard shipping is 5-10 days from the date of shipping. I received it the same day. The box was on my porch before I saw the email saying that it had shipped. It arrived in perfect condition, and was minimally packaged to protect the ottoman from any damage. Assembly: Incredibly easy. The main part of the ottoman arrives fully assembled - there's no assembly for the hinge. The only thing you have to do is screw in the four feet. There are no instructions, but it's obvious: remove the plastic covering on the screws, find the holes at the four corners of the base (look for the staples on either side of it if you're unsure) and screw them in. It took less than 10 minutes to assemble, and most of that was getting it out of the box! I think that covers it. We are beyond happy with our purchase.

I love this ottoman. Very comfortable and what a great price! I shopped around and I couldn't find a price close to it for an ottoman this large. It has a pretty big storage space, which is great. The bottom of the legs have smooth rounded plastic pieces attached, so the ottoman moves smoothly over my hardwood floor without damaging it. I recommend this ottoman! Thanks!
I'm very pleased. Negative: the plastic feet, but that was expected. Assembly was easy. The unexpected: there is a device that holds the cushion in place once lifted up. The upholstery is nicely finished around the edges and bottom.

I read a review when someone received this item with bad hinges and they sent it back.. Well, I think I got the one he sent back. It looks like a nice ottoman but when I opened the lid the first time I noticed it was opening crooked. I looked at the hinges and the left was not connected to the ottoman. Upon closer inspection it seemed that the screws were screwed into several different holes.. Like someone that didn't know what they were doing tried to fix it. I had some longer screws in my shed and reattached the hinge but the back side of the ottoman seems a bit week and I"m sure it won't be long before the hinges are popping off again. If it does I'll just remove the lid and add a piece of wood around the edge between the Lid and the ottoman base and then screw the hinges to the new wood. The piece looks good but made a bit cheap, if your not handy.. Look for something else..

The ottoman looks expensive without being expensive. This is what all women hopes for in shopping. The compartment is very nice and large. I don't even fold up my two fuzzy blankets and I just throw these in there along with my pillow and it all fits nicely and there is probably room for another blanket. The legs are plastic but this does not matter as the color is dark enough so you do not notice unless you tap on the leg. Only one small suggestion to the manufacturer - equip the legs with a longer screw stem (2-inches longer will be nice) so the legs can be adjusted a bit taller.

love this ottoman and storage unit. I replaced my damaged cedar chest with this in my hallway. The grey color goes perfect with my floor tiles. There is plenty of storage inside so not sure why some have said it is small and doesn't hold much. I have 4 throws in there already and plenty more room left. it is sturdy too as we use it to sit and put our shoes on and off.
Much nicer than in the picture! I ordered the kacki, its may be a shade lighter in person but its beautiful. This ottoman is very well made. I was even able to fit a king sized comforter in the storage area!! I ordered the ottoman on Saturday 11/6 it was delivered 8:30AM on Tuesday 11/9. I coudln't be happier! Thanks Overstock.com!!!
I'm fairly happy with my purchase. The ottoman is generously sized and works well with a loveseat. There's plenty of space for DVDs, gaming items, remotes, etc. in the storage area. It has also held up well to my dog's assaults in these first few weeks. I don't love the color (the cardinal red has a rusty tinge, possibly because of the nature of microfiber fabric?) but I threw a fake sheepskin over it and it's not a deal-breaker.
Perfect height to use as foot stool with my couch. Just enough cushioning to be comfortable. Color matched order page. Very satisfied. Open and soft close lid is an added benefit. My 15-month old grandson can open and close lid w/o worry of pinched fingers. Interior storage isn't huge, but enough for toys, handicraft projects, or one or two throws.
Beautiful quality design, construction and aesthetics. Leather is soft and color true to description. We bought this to use as a foot rest/coffee table/storage bench in front of a leather loveseat in our master bedroom. It works perfectly and I knw we will enjoy it for years. We have only had good experiences with Overstock and this adds one more.
