A modern twist on a traditional chair or chaise, this is an on-trend ottoman that showcases a lightly angled silhouette that is 3 feet wide. It is perfect for seating a single person. A versatile espresso finish on its splayed wooden legs gives it the perfect minimalist foundation. As for the seat, it is padded with foam and is upholstered with polyester-blend fabric. It comes in a neutral hue for an understated appeal. Sleek nailhead trim rounds out the design of this item in a subtle shimmer. Once assembled, this ottoman supports up to 249 lbs.

You can use this item to store seasonal items, sit on it while wearing shoes, put the final finishing touches to your evening dress before heading out, or even use it in a mudroom. Storage ottomans can be used to hold blankets, throws, gloves, mittens, hats, scarves, and other items that are generally categorized as home miscellanea, the things we cannot do without but don’t need with us everywhere, all the time. That is what makes storage ottomans so useful and functional: they look like seats, function like sofas, are assembled like chairs, can be used as storage bins, and can be placed virtually anywhere in the house! This item does not have a storage bin, but that is still something that should be kept in mind when making a purchase decision.

Pros

Here are what customers who purchased this item have to say about it.

The first thing that people said about this is that it looks expensive. One buyer said she got this piece to go in her bedroom and it matches perfectly. She wanted a chair to add next to her mirror so she can use it to put shoes on after getting dressed. She wanted something functional yet sophisticated. This piece worked just right. It is wider then she thought but it goes fine in the area next to the mirror. A verified buyer said that this item is beautiful but it is a little too short and might come with defective parts. Despite this, however, she says she does love it. It is easy to assemble and it is absolutely beautiful. However, one of the legs only had one hole for the screw instead of two and she had to reach out to customer support to request that they send her new legs for this item. It is a little too low if your bed is high. What you can instead do if this is the setup you have is place it under a wall mirror in your bedroom. This is an inexpensive yet rich looking piece.

Even though it is small, many buyers said they love it for that very feature. One buyer needed something in her entryway to put under a frame wall she had put together and this was the perfect item for it. It is very sturdy, extremely easy to put together (takes about 10 minutes) and it is so very well packaged. Items at Wayfair are always delivered very quickly, too. This buyer purchased the beige color and it is a very nice color. We would recommend it as an accent piece for any room.

Cons

Other buyers had different opinions about this item. One buyer said she was not impressed with this ottoman. It turned out to be very lightweight and not very sturdy. The buyer was always afraid of having a heavy person sit on this piece of furniture. The legs can be difficult to attach as well because they can be hard to line up but she was finally able to get them in the holes after much struggle. She said she loves the look of this ottoman but not the quality and would not purchase it again.

Another reviewer rated this item as 2 out of 5 stars because it came with easy assembly but the color was darker than expected and the material looked as if it is not fitted tightly and the height was short too. She said she should have paid more attention to the dimensions (which is what we always say you should do when we write our reviews). For her, this item will most likely end up in the bedroom when she finds the one she is looking for. In the end, she said she will definitely not purchase it online again. This is because It looks okay but doesn’t feel all too sturdy. The material on the bottom that you have to Velcro on was sewed crookedly for some customers which leaves an unfinished Velcro area that feels rough if you reach underneath. Another buyer’s ottoman ripped along the edge where the rivets are. She said she will be contacting the company for a replacement. All in all, however, she was not happy with the product.

Conclusion

In terms of what you get in terms of what you pay, this item is nice looking and functional. The assembly directions are pretty clear and overall it is a pretty smooth process. Afterward, it looks like a really high-quality piece and will make any room very cozy. It can make your room formally anchored and somewhat upscale so if you want a budget-friendly ottoman that is easy to set up, comes in multiple color options, and can be assembled by professionals and even comes with customer-friendly payment plans, then the Coggin Tufted Ottoman is a good item to go for. Hopefully, our review will give you the peace of mind you need to seal the deal and make the purchase so give it a try and see how you like it!
