I received the ottoman in great condition and in a reasonable amount of time. After opening the packing box, I was so very disappointed in the size of the storage ottoman. I was planning to store my deck furniture cushions in it to protect them from the rain and sun, but the height, width and depth of the ottoman was so small there was no way I could put any of my cushions in it for storage. The material and design of the ottoman was a weave of rattan which left holes all over the ottoman. There is no way it could protect anything inside from the rain. It is not for use outside for any kind of protection so I put it in our garden shed to store flower pots and gardening tools. I purchased another storage bench from **** for $**.** vs. this one which cost $***. I can conveniently store all my deck cushions in this sealed ottoman without rain penetrating the contents. This ottoman is too large and bulky to return or fit back into the tightly fitted box it came in. I absolutely don't recommend this ottoman for your deck to store cushions in.
I love this bench! It comes in four pieces and was quickly assembled in 5 minutes. The design works well with contemporary or traditional decor. It is not heavy, which is fine because it is very sturdy. My biggest challenge with this piece was determining where to place it... in the front of the house for everyone to see, or in the back yard to improved the look of the space?? I ended up placing it in the back, next to my shed. I planted some perennials on each side, and this significantly improved the whole dynamic of that space. Great buy!
Needed to fill a little space in my yard next to the shed with something that distracted from the fact that no grass would grow there. Looks perfect with a flower pot on it. Relatively easy to put together (would have been even easier if I had had some help). Note that the color is not pure powder coat black but more of a rust-like finish; nothing wrong with it, but it's not entirely clear from the picture.
