I purchased this ottoman for a couple of reasons: 1) foot rest. 2) storage 3) coffee table. I am overall pleased with the product and it was shipped on time and in perfect condition. The color was exactly as it was pictured on line. The size fits perfect in my small living space so it doesn't overtake the room and it is light enough to move around. The only con I would have is the surface is a little firm when resting your feet but a pillow helps with that and besides it works great as a coffee table so I can rest things on the ottoman without worrying about items tipping over. Love it!
