We just received this ottoman after a long search for a coffee table. With two kids we needed something without sharp edges, something that could hold up to being climbed on and something that wouldn't fall apart-all of a reasonable price. This fit the bill. We were looking at pieces elsewhere for $2,000. But when we found this, we couldn't believe it. Ordered it and received it quickly. Fits perfectly in our living room and we love it. The only issue that we have is that our living room is grey colored. Although this is "grey" it is more of a gray with a navy tint, which doesn't completely match our decor, but for the price, who cares! It still looks fantastic. But if you have a color scheme that will not work with any blues, this won't work for you.
