We bought this ottoman for our very small condo living area. There is a nice corner of the room that has a traffic path intersect it into the master bedroom. Wish I could attach a photo to show. In that corner we had put two accent chairs with a small round table (also from Overstock) in between. We wanted to make sure the chairs were visually compelling to use. The ottoman was the perfect solution. It is large but it finishes off the corner. The velvet fabric and burst of color gives it a cozy feeling, and it doesn't block the path. As a footstool it works great and provides a lot of area for leg room. To put it in perspective I am 5'1" and my husband is 6'2", and we both find it comfortable. It's also easy to move up to the coffee table to use for extra seating and you can store quite a bit of stuff in there!
