We love this ottoman! We use it in place of a coffee table in our living room as we have 2 little boys and want to limit the amount of hard corners to potentially cause harm :) I searched for a long time to find a soft-top table/ottoman that we would actually want to put in our traditional-styled living room. This worked out perfectly! The shape and color (dark brown) or the wooden legs matched our dining room table. But what I actually liked the most was the "firmness" of the padded leather top. It is not, by any standard, hard. I don't know that I would use it as a traditional ottoman for the fact that it is not a squishy top - but that's exactly why it worked perfectly for us. We wanted something that wont hurt a kid if he runs into it, but was sturdy enough to put a tray on and a couple drinks if we wanted. I am actually surprised how light the piece is. It is very lightweight and easily moves with a light touch. Again, not an issue for us because of the kids and it's in the living room which we use less often. It's nice that I can easily move it out of the way so the boys can play on the rug. However, I could see that it could possibly frustrate someone else. It also makes me think it could be sold for less than I paid for it, but bottom line it is beautiful and does what we intended for it. If you are looking for a piece for a similar reason, this is the one to get!
We couldn't be happier with this lovely, plush ottoman--we being my dog and me. She needed help getting on the bed and I'm not always at her disposal. The fact that it looks lovely in the rug at the end of the bed is a bonus! Would definitely recommend.
