We are in love with these ottomans! We ordered three! I had to share how wonderful they are. Our living room was feeling cramped with four long-legged people that wanted to stretch out when we watched TV. Adding these storage ottomans is one of the best things we have ever done. They are versatile as extra seating when we have company. The top flips back to reveal lots of storage. Perfect for blankets or kid toys. Safety hinge insures kid fingers don't get hurt. They are sturdy and just the right weight. They don't move when you put your feet on them but aren't too heavy so they are easy to move. They are leather but they are sealed against spills. They are the perfect blue-red and they aren't too shiny and cheap looking. We just love them!
