The dark gray fabric initially caught my eye but upon delivery the ottoman sat very low to the ground so I immediately proceeded to add foot rests that matched our sofa. Liked the end result very much except the ottoman was hard and not comfortable since there was very little padding. Almost a year to the date the ottoman structure snapped while a guest was sitting on it~VERY embarrassing for her to say the least. While opening up to expose the support structure I found that it had been poorly designed and an inappropriate choice of wood was used and poorly designed to support much of anything. It's a wonder it did not break before now though it is rarely sat on. I would not recommend this piece to anyone. Poor quality, poor design & poor materials. Don't waste your money.
