Well made, not oversized, love it.
 from Chicago, IL,  Apr 15, 2012

I absolutely love this ottoman. It is very well made and heavy, with style and class. It is not your typical shape for an ottoman and I love that. I was originally looking for a square shape large enough to be useful for everyone to put their feet up when they sat on our sectional. I was really having a hard time finding something suitable. I had been to every funiture store in our area and found nothing that I liked enough to spend the crazy dollars they want for ottomans these days. Most were over $1,000. In fact, we ordered one from a high end funrniture store when we ordered our sofa, but when it came in 6 weeks later, it was awful. Cheaply made, hard as a rock, and not worth the $1,400 price tag. We returned it and they even apologized for the quality. I had just about given up when I came accross this one. Everything about it was perfect. It would go with the style and colors in the room, it was the right fabric, shape, size, and it was made in the USA!! I ordered it sight unseen (which made me a tad nervous) and couldn't wait for it to come. The description said 6 to 8 weeks for delivery, but I didn't care really. That's how long it takes to get most furniture no matter where you order it from. Plus, I felt that the time was needed to create the piece by the manufacturer right here in the US, and not because it would take 4 weeks to get here by cargo ship from China which is where most of our furniture comes from now. Suprisingly, I got my ottoman in about 3 weeks! It is a really nice piece that I believe is worth the $, however, it is not as big as I thought it would be. Barely big enough to work with my sectional, but it looks awsome in the room. This is where my only problems were with the ottoman. And I shouldn't say the ottoman because it's a great piece but more with Overstock for missing the boat on the dimentions. The description gives two different sets of dimentions. One says 19 X 45 and the other says 19 X 39. I made the assumption that the 19 was the height and the larger number was the diagonal measurement. I hoped it was the larger of the two. There were all kinds of notations on the description pertaining to it's large size so I was confident it would work. Well, when it came, I was shocked by how much smaller it was than I had imagined. It still is beautiful, and it works for my room, but it is not big enough for everyone to use so it has to be pulled from one side or the other so my family can put their feet up. This was a disappointment to be sure. The actual measurements of this ottoman are 17 inches high by 37 inches diagonally ( 32 inches X 32 inches X 17 inches high). Not anywhere near what the dimentions stated. I was sort of mad that it wasn't that big, but I loved how it looked, and the quality and, frankly, I was sick of looking for the right thing. So I kept it. I'm glad I did because I really like it. The shape is great and the nail heads are really beautiful. I would recommend this piece to anyone, just be aware it is not oversized at all.
