This ottoman is such a stunning piece in person. The leather is really high quality, and you can feel the richness of it when you touch it. The stitching is good, too, and I have a feeling that this ottoman will stand up to the challenging demands of my young family! I love the fact that it has the slatted undercarriage, as it's perfect for storage. I've filled mine with brightly colored storage boxes full of the kids' stuff. It's a great way to keep things handy without having them take over the room. In all, I'm really taken with this piece, and love how versatile it is.
