I purchased this ottoman as a storage trunk for blankets and pillows. I have it at the end of a king size bed. The trunk came mostly assembled and wasn't too heavy. I needed a little help getting it out of the box due to it's snug fit. Once it was out, though, it was lightweight enough for me to put the legs on myself. Only issues...the packet of silicone gel beads in the trunk (or whatever they used in packaging) was ripped open... little balls started rolling everywhere and I had to get out the vacuum before the pets could eat them. Also, the dust cover on the bottom had a small tear. I decided it's on the bottom and small so not worth contacting customer service for a replacement item. As far as the rest of the product, the gray fabric is exactly the color I hoped it would be and is very soft. It looks like it will be semi-easy to clean in the event something gets spilled on it. It feels sturdy enough for me to sit on to tie my shoes, but I'm not sure how it would hold up for bigger people (I'm about 115 lbs). I like the way the lid opens so I can have the trunk right up against the bed. It looks great in the bedroom...simple clean lines, with a soft "cozy" fabric. My only disappointment is, based on the dimensions of the outside, the inside doesn't have much space as I thought it would. The inside is more shallow than it appears to be from the outside. It will still be ok, but it just doesn't hold as much as I wanted it to. I basically have it stuffed full with one king blanket, one queen blanket and two small pillows.
