I'd had my eye on this ottoman for a while and was encouraged by the reviews. So glad I bought it! There was a little snafu with the order itself and it didn't arrive as quickly as others seem to report, but everything worked out. The size is perfect for my smaller condo living room (32" square) as compared to the 40" round glass-top coffee table it replaced -- much more functional as well, because I can store magazines and "junk" on the shelf underneath, yet still have easy access (vs. storage ottomans that you would have to open and close to retrieve items). The top is indeed quality leather and looks awesome. I've already received great compliments on it and am very happy with it. As others reported, it arrived fully assembled and was easy to unpack. Only negative: There are some places on the legs where the finish was scratched off -- should be easy to cover up and I considered it the price of getting such a great deal. If you plan to use this in a large room, you might want to consider its size -- it's not huge, but that's why I bought it. I highly recommend this piece.
