The color compared well with the website, and the description was accurate on the website. The size is perfect in diameter for 2 people to sit on opposite ends of a sofa and prop feet up and still have room for remote controls (2). The inside is spacious and the lid has really nice pegs that keep it from sliding off of the base. It is fairly heavy too, and doesn't slide easily. The feet are about 3 inches, so to use it as an ottoman we cannot have the feet on it, but it works. The material is its only downfall: it is thin and stretches really easily. Not torn or anything, and can't see through it, but wrinkles and stretches easily. Definitely being careful with it. However, for the price range, it is a pretty good find. We have had it for about a month and no major issues, but I don't expect it to last longer than a couple of years.
