This was shipped promptly and arrived in a matter of days. Strangely, I never received an email saying it had shipped and my order status showed "processing" even after delivery. I bought the same item in 2010 and only replaced it because it had faded in the sunlight. I was slightly disappointed with the new one. The top layer (part that lifts up) is much thinner compared to the original which was almost 2" thicker. The new one also has an unsightly silver hinge that runs almost 2 feet (20") and spoils the look of a black piece of furniture (the old one had 2 hinges of about an inch). The new one came with cheap plastic legs (which were somehow scratched even though they were wrapped and in a box!) while the old one had much nicer black wooden legs with floor guards. I just swapped the old and new legs so no biggie. But you may be disappointed if you have to use what comes with the ottoman now. So, while I paid *** more than 7 years ago (which isn't too bad), the quality went down a bit. Overall, however, I am satisfied with my purchase, especially for the reasonable price and free shipping.
I really enjoy these ottomans. I purchased 2 to replace coffee tables in my living room. I have a 5 year old and 20 mo. old that crawl in, out, and all over them.. They have been good for storage and extra seating. the reviews that I read before purchasing were helpful; although some stated that the hinges do not hold up. I am waiting to see if this happens. If it does I will just try to replace the hinges because so far I like this product.
