This ottoman looks like much more expensive ottomans. Grant it, it isn't leather but it looks like leather and most people aren't going to get down close to it to check if it is or isn't. It arrived on time, in good condition, functions well and cost a lot less than its leather counterpart. I would highly recommend this ottoman to anyone.
We bought this item to hide all my 2 year old sons toys. It is a great product because it is easy for my son to open and the lid stays open. It will not shut on my son and he can open and close it without the fear of him getting hurt. It has a lot of storage room and all his toys fit in the unit. Also it is easy to assembly, you just screw on the legs. It looks great in the room and is worth the money especially if you are trying to find somewhere to hide all those toys that are always laying around the family room.
I love this bench because of its large storage space and it looks very nice. The screws that attach the hinges to the lid and body of the bench were much too short which seems to be a common cost cutting practice these days with less expensive products. They pulled out almost immediately. I'm sure it's easily fixable but can't do it myself so I'm very willing to pay someone to repair it. Otherwise I would have given the bench 5 stars. I'm storing 3 standard size pillows, 3 smaller blankets and 2 sets of sheets in the storage space quite comfortably. That is a huge plus since I live in a small condo. Every inch of usable space in the body of the bench is open for storage. Just for information, the lid needs 3 plus inches of space between the bench and the wall to open. It has a great hinge though which makes it easy to open part way and have it stay put which allows the bench to be almost flush with the wall.
This is a nice Ottoman and would work perfectly either in a living room or bedroom. Storage area is sufficient and overall quality seems fine, although I noticed that the hinges on the lid are already starting to squeak a bit. The color is definitely dark-brown, but don't buy this expecting espresso. The color is close enough but you will notice that it's slightly lighter which may or may not be an issue if you're a stickler for getting everything to match perfectly. My only complaint is that I wish this was a little heavier - as it is now, it's very easy to knock out of place.

first shipment of the ottoman had the equivalent of a nail piercing the edge, so contacted overstock to return/exchange. I was sent a new one, the new one arrived with a hole on the edge the size of a nail or screw. Overstock was very accomodating, and is now sending me out another ottoman that is a little more expensive (since this product is now out of stock), but product was/is questionable.

Fits in the space, comfortable when we rest our feet on it or sit on it, yet stiff enough to rest food on it (or even a beverage) without risk of tipping it over. The compartment is large enough to store a large (queen sized) quilt without having to fold it, which means we actually put it away instead of leaving it on the couch. In other words, I love it!
I was really impressed by the look, comfort and feel of this storage bench. A bonus that the lid also stays up when opened. I'd been searching for storage benches for awhile, so this was definitely a good buy--comfortable & attractive bench, low price and fast delivery.
This piece arrived in a used U Haul cardboard with tape all around it, once I removed the package the cover came off completely, the screws where the hinges were attached were stripped and almost looked like old screws were holding it in place, very disappointed in this piece, will look elsewhere for a storage ottoman.
We've had this for about a month now. I can say the quality is good, it is sturdy and the storage space inside is great. It is easy to keep clean and looks higher-end than what it cost. Only downfall is I wish it was just a little taller to make it a bit more comfortable for sitting on. We bought it for extra storage space in the living room and extra seating when we have guests, and it serves both these purposes.
This is nice for the price but not big like the other reviews said. I have one in my room and its roomy, I can fit a lot of stuff in there. But what I like about it is that it's light and of course you can get 6 sheet set in there. "Queen size" I would think.
The product did take a few weeks to arrive but arrived with no visible damages. The only issues I see is the leather top eventually moving out of place after so much use and the hinges possibly coming off after so much opening and closing. I haven't had it for too long but no issues thus far.
