This ottoman was maybe the first time a product I ordered online actually exceeded my hopes. The color is gorgeous -- a deep rich red, not candy apple or tomato-y. The product is very high quality -- the picture actually does not do it justice. It is now a focal point in my living room. I totally love it. It also shipped much more quickly than I expected -- I ordered it on Thursday and I got it on Monday afternoon! (I selected the normal $2.95 shipping, not expedited or anything.) This was my first time shopping at Overstock, and I must say I'm quite happy.
