I love this ottoman. This was my first online furniture purchase so I was pretty anxious and did not know what to expect. I lucked out and the product looks exactly as featured in the picture. I love the quality and the workmanship. The color is as expected, dark rick espresso. Its utilitarian with a ton of storage and great to look at. There is just one tiny thing. Since this is a storage ottoman, there are a few hinges involved which are unfortunately visible from the outside. I did not like them showing so I just turned that side to face the TV so no one can really see it from most angles. Aside from that one little nit, the piece is really a great buy and its leather!
