I purchased two of these ottomans to go in my den, and they are quite attractive. I can put two together for a "coffee table" or use them seperately. Small enough to push to the side if you need more floor space. The colors are nice, and they are attractive. The extra storage is nice for toys, books - stuff that might otherwise clutter the den. I was disappointed that there was a small slit in the material on one of the ottomans when I took it out of the box. It really is not that noticeable, so I didn't bother going through the hassle and expense of a return, but I was not happy about it. I don't know how durable these are, but I wouldn't be too rough with them. For the money, they are a good value, though.
