Needed a coffee table/ottoman for a footrest/regular table. Decided on this after seeing the reviews and comparing similar items. The overall length is equivalent to the seating area of my love seat. This makes it not too big/not too small for my needs. For a larger room this would not suffice as a coffee table but I do not have the room so it works for that purpose. Quality is decent, some minor scratches which I am unsure of as to origin (whether I scratched it or it came that way). Easy to put together (only had to put the feet on it). Its lightweight yet sturdy enough to move around. Storage area is large although it has a separator in the middle which limits the size of the items you can put in there. Overall its very good for the price. (I would have given it a 5 star rating if the storage area did not have a divider).
