I bought this ottoman / coffee table for a semi small yet formal living room. In my opinion the size & height are perfect. The piece matches other Wenge furniture I have and the cream cushion keeps the space light which is why I chose it so for that I'm happy. Also, assembly took abut 15 minutes by myself... very easy. My only issuer was the foam insert of the cushion is light weight and in my opinion giving it a less than luxurious feel. Details like that tend to bother me which is why I mention it now. Luckily the underside of the cushion unzips so I will probably have a higher density, better quality piece of foam cut for the table so I feel more satisfied with the finished look and feel.
