When I ordered I was expecting the patchwork version but later realized that only one style was available when I ordered. The piece works great. A hinge on the top would have been nice but for the price it's hard to complain. I bought it to hold a large throw that rests on a fairly expensive leather chair with an antique side table. The ottoman is able to hold it's own even though it's not leather. There seems to be a slightly oily finish on the faux leather but I plan to wipe it down a natural polish that will hopefully abate some of the residue.
