I had a really hard time deciding whether to purchase this ottoman, particularly because the review all stated that the color of the picture is inaccurate. However, everyone failed to describe the actual color. It is a beautiful rich brown with reddish undertones. I am thrilled with it. There is tons of storage space for all my baby's toys, and it looks top quality. Don't hesitate with this one. It is a great buy. Just keep in mind the color and that is a bit longer than the average ottoman. It goes great with my dark brown sectional..
