I should have measured better because the ottoman is a little smaller than I thought it would be. I am using it as a bench in my living room. I love the storage, but don't particularly like that I can see the hinges- thought they would be better hidden (the ottoman isn't against a wall). I would say you should definitely purchase this if you're using it against a wall or at the end of a bed. The storage is nice, the bonded leather is beautiful and comfortable to sit on.
