Pros

This item is very nice for the price. The red version is nice, dark, and rich, and it has great size at the bottom of your king or queen bed. It has a little pucker in the fabric on the top center, also known as a tuft. It is a good overall purchase that comes with fast delivery, easy assembly, and nice looks. If you open the cover too wide and too quick, the spring will pop out. It goes back in but just open it carefully. Plus, it doesn’t open all the way. Only a little way up! With that being said, this item is stylish, is the perfect color, has good size, might be a little too low for some users, and the plastic legs might be too short too.

Regardless, this item will make a nice addition to your family room. You will be able to use it to store many items such as seasonal clothes, gloves, hats, and other miscellanea, and even use it as a coffee table to keep remotes and other items close at hand yet stored away. These are the kinds of items that you just don’t want to look at all the time but need nearby nonetheless. It also has enough padding to comfortably rest your feet.

This item also makes a great addition to your entry for putting on shoes and storing umbrellas, gloves, and hats. Some customer said they wish the legs were wood instead of plastic and maybe a little higher, but the item still delivered good value despite these minor issues.

All in all, the size and storage space of this item are great. Assembly is easy, just attach the feet. The price is reasonable, delivery is quick, but some people had .issue with the packaging. The feet are sometimes packaged against the ottoman top and indentations become visible on both sides of the top. They remain 2 days after unpacking as well but shouldn’t be a long-term issue for anyone. That said, most people enjoyed their bedroom bench. One buyer had a spacey den so she placed it behind the couch to serve as extra seating and storage. She said she wished that it would have been just a little taller, but the bench is comfortable and well made.

Cons

The shipping time for this item is reasonable, but the condition in which the benches arrive are sometimes questionable. One customer reported that their benches were delivered with visible spots of rust and corrosion on the metal hardware. Also, one of the benches had a hole in the storage area fabric. This buyer threw out her old benches so she needed these benches, so she asked in her review for two new benches to be sent out to her as a replacement. Okay!

Conclusion

The pros of this item are that it is a quality piece of furniture for the rather inexpensive cost at which it is priced. Some of the shortcomings are that you need to check the size and height of the space you have before making a purchase as they may not fit in the dimensions of this ottoman, even though it is relatively small.

Overall, this is the perfect size for most standard bedrooms and living areas. The item itself is sturdy and not very cheap-looking. Many people only gave it 4 stars because Wayfair sent an early delivery date but then changed it on the day it was supposed to arrive for some people. Overall, it is a great purchase for the size, features, price, and other options that it provides you with. If you are looking for an ottoman that is functional and usually delivers rather quickly and is available at a discount and in a decent range of colors and is easy to assemble and comes from the design home of a known and respected furniture house then look no further than the Boston Storage Ottoman. There were no complaints about bedbugs or other infestations that are common with upholstered furniture items, nor were there many issues with damaged items being delivered or items being delivered that were re-sold after having been returned by other unhappy customers. These things matter! And these are the things that this item has so far been able to avoid. With an overall rating of 4.7 across over 1,000 unique reviews, this item is a solid bet, has classy looks, is relatively inexpensive, and will do the job you need it to do just right.
