I don't write reviews, but obviously I am writing one for this Ottoman. Why? Because, both my wife and I absolutely love this ottoman. One of the reasons why we bought this ottoman was because it was very unique compared to all the other ones in the market. Most of the ones were so called "leather" ottoman, they all claimed them to be leather but were generally man made "leatherette". If your taste is trendy and/or modern, you will love this ottoman. We love it so much that we have placed the ottoman in our foyer. So when you open the front door to our house, this is the first thing you see when you enter. Our intended purpose was to have our guest sit on the ottoman while they take off their shoes or put them on. Also, the storage is a big plus. The only slight disappointment we had was no fault of Overstock.com. The way the manufacturer had taken the picture, it doesn't give you detailed picture. So we had imagined it to be tad bit darker, and it turned out to be tad bit lighter. Still not a deal breaker, but I guess our expectations were too high. As far as value, it is the best value when compared to style and size. A similar sized ottoman from Costco sells for $299, that too when it's on sale. We bought this one for $219 from Overstock.com. Overall we are extremely happy with our purchase, the shipping was very fast. The ottoman was packed very well by the manufacturer that it arrived in perfect condition and required no assembly. I hope this helps in your buying decision.
