I bought this to replace my coffee table because my 9-month-old daughter was beginning to crawl and cruise and our coffee table was too dangerous for her to be near. This ottoman is perfect! I was so impressed with the quality as soon as I opened the box; it was packed with care and came with the feet attached, so nothing to assemble. It's very sturdy and well-hinged. I like that the tops don't slam shut (very nice for my little one!) and it holds a lot of stuff...great for toys. The leather is very nice, and the overall style is sleek. I did a lot of comparison shopping and am 100% satisfied with my purchase. I was expecting a good piece of furniture, but this ottoman really did exceed my expectations!
