I searched for a while for a suitable ottoman. I found this one but on another site for quite a bit more money. I was glad to find it at Overstock for a much better price. The ottoman is very expensive looking. The Dark Brown is a true rich dark brown. There is ample storage room inside that could hold 2 throw pillows or a couple of throws. It feels sturdy enough to use as a seat for a grown up. The top flips over to reveal a nice wood (I think) tray with handles that could be used to hold drinks and/or a plate, So, you are actually getting a foot stool, a seat, storage, and a tray all in a beautiful piece of furniture. Excellent piece of furniture. I may order another one.
