This ottoman is a great size but a little tall (by about 3 inches) if you are using it in front of a sofa. The bi-cast has a distinct smell(not a leather smell) to it but fades with time. The ottoman is lightweight but construction is very sturdy. The brown is very dark and more close to black. Overall a good choice for the money.
I was very pleased with this ottoman. It was fully assembled, and looks great. The leather on the top is not as soft and supple as I would have loved, but I didn't expect it to be from the pictures. All in all, got what I expected and am happy about it.
I am thrilled with this new ottoman/coffee table. The color is a dark chocolate brown and the leather looks great for the price. The generous size allows for us to place a large tray on one side of the table for flowers, drinks, etc. and still have plenty of room to put feet up (or you can easily store the tray underneath when not using). The table arrived fully assembled but with virtually no wrap/padding in the package, and unfortunately there was a small (1/2 inch) gash in one of the legs which happened during shipping. It was close to the bottom, and I didn't want to deal with returns, so I asked Overstock for a 10% credit which they gave me. This table definitely accomplishes my goal of having a functional, "comfy" piece while keeping a trendy, modern look to the room in the style of a popular but pricey furniture store we all know.
I ordered this ottoman on Monday and received it Wednesday! I could not believe it came that fast. All I had to do was unpack it and put it into place. No assembly. It looks wonderful. I put our wedding album on the shelf below and purchased a basket for the remotes to place next to the album. Looks great! I highly recommend this product.
This ottoman is absolutely my favorite piece of furniture in my entire house. Its huge! Its big enough for 4 or 5 people to lay their feet on it. No assemble needed. The shelf is convenient to place my magazines or books. Great Product!
I received this product within four days of ordering. I am very pleased with this ottoman. It is a rich dark brown and fits very well with my living room furniture. The piece seems to be well constructed and there was no assembly required. I would definitely recommend this piece.
This ottoman was a steal! I was expecting and would have been happy for a lesser quality piece of furniture for the price. It is high quality in workmanship and looks. It is a great addition to our living room. It is solid enough that it could be moved to a side wall and used as seating. It arrived put together, in reading earlier comments I was expecting to have to put the legs on it. I have now placed three orders with Overstock and am sold. I was cautious at first, but am now a dedicated customer.
The ottoman arrives in a very manageable box, with the legs detached inside the storage compartment. It's dead easy to assemble - the legs just screw on - and that's it. It feels solid and well constructed and when opened, the lid is held stably, by strong hinges and the whole assembly is well balanced. It also looks gorgeous and is the perfect height for putting your feet up, when sitting on the sofa. Highly recommended.
I was worried about the condition when I received the box. It was torn and taped up, but I was relieved the ottoman was in perfect condition once I unpacked it. It was exactly what I was looking for and matched my other espresso furniture perfectly.
After reading the strong reviews here, ordered this last week. and it arrived today. With a baby getting ready to walk soon, I wanted to get rid of glass coffee table and replace with something stylish, functional and safe (soft corners). This fits the bill perfectly. Wasn't looking to spend a lot and was willing to compromise a bit on quality/styling, but am so happy to see that it looks great.Arrived very well packaged -- inside the box it was double wrapped in two layers of protective material. Just pull it out of the box and ready to go - no assembly.This one had no scratches or defects of any kind.The leather is actually better than I had expected for this price. There are no flaws in it and its "thicker" than I had expected. Also the stitching pattern on the top is good quality (in squares looks very nice).Overall a great buy, especially compared to a very similar model going for twice the price at a major home furniture retailer. Very happy with this purchase!
Let's keep this in context....this is not a piece of *fine* furniture but it's a fine piece of furniture. It looks like something you would purchase at a large (trendy) furnture retailer. The color is as it appears in the image. I read some other reviews about the wood stain looking more red than pictured but I don't agree--the wood is a dark chocolate brown. The quality of the leather (?) top is decent...doesn't exude a rich, buttery leather feel but I would never expect that given the price. We purchased this for a casual family room and it fits the bill perfectly. The delivery and packaging were great and the ottoman arrived on time without any dings or scratches. Given the price, this is well worth it.
I had been searching for the perfect ottoman for some time when I found this one at overstock.com. Much to my surprise, it came in three days!! The color is a dark espresso brown, exactly what I wanted. It is really much better than my expect. I love, love, love this ottoman!! Looks very expensive and modern. This is truly a great buy, value for the cost.
