This item deserves 4 and a half stars because it is functional and is inexpensive. It looks good, is quick to deliver, and comes from a recognized design home. It comes in a decent range of colors and can be used in a variety of settings and rooms. It does not cost an awful lot and comes with wonderful customer support as well. There were just a few issues with delivery and damage incurred during delivery, and those are things we will cover in the next section. Just be prepared to receive a less than perfect item since that is common with online items, especially furniture items that tend to be bulky and can take time to be delivered.

This ottoman is everything some buyers said they needed it to be! The linen material is perfect and it holds faux fur blankets out of the way. You can also use this ottoman to sit your work bag and purse on daily. It is very easy to put together. This buyer was very pleased with this purchase because this was just what they were looking for. One family said they needed something you can rest your feet on when sitting at the couch, and something that could double as a seat. This item is sturdy enough for sitting on. It is a bit wobbly, but if you put some felt on the feet, that will fix it. Like one of the other reviewers stated, numerous buyers only received 3 washers. Many still gave this a 5-star rating because the fabric is wonderfully soft and it’s the cutest thing ever.

Finally, one customer needed an ottoman for her my family room but wanted one that wouldn’t take up too much space and that would be easy to move to different areas. This one is just right, and it can be used to store a couple of throws in it, too. The only reason it got 4 stars from some people rather than 5 is that it is darker than it looked online and is almost black.


Some buyers experienced assembly issues with this item. They said that this ottoman looks great but that’s it. After using it for a few months, some buyers found that the cushions went flat and the seam buttons started popping off. Cheaply made, this along with just about everything else they bought from Wayfair ended up disappointing. This item basically looks very cheap. The lid doesn’t sit well, it comes with poor stitching, and it looks like nylon. The buyer who said these things about it said she was returning it. If you are looking to buy something that will not be in sight a lot, could be useful for the price, and seems roomy, this is an item to go for, but it just looks a little cheap.


The main pros of this item are that it arrives fast, looks nice, and you can’t complain about the price. If you purchase the whitewash version, keep in mind that the stand is not as matte as it may look. The color still works for most bedroom ensembles for which you would want a white color, however. The cons of this item are that it is a bit tricky to put together since the tools provided with it are somewhat cheap and some hardware items may even be missing.

All in all, if you are looking for great value and unbeatable price, this ottoman is the way to go. Most buyers were extremely happy with this purchase. It can take some time to put this together by yourself, inclusive of time needed for unboxing, sorting parts, and reading instructions from the beginning to the end before starting to put it together. Two-day delivery for this item is a fantastic benefit to have, and the manufacturer includes additional panels on both ends of the box for added protection during shipping. Have your vacuum cleaner ready to go from the moment you open the box because you will have Styrofoam everywhere!

Because it is made of wood, as long as you don’t over-force anything during assembly and risk cracking or damaging the item, you will be fine. As you probably saw in online pictures, this ottoman is classy, is not too heavy, looks nice in different lighting textures, and comes from a known and recognized design house. It has been reviewed over 1,000 times and has an overall rating of 4.7 out of 5. There were a few cases where buyers were disappointed with the accuracy (or lack thereof) of some of the color options, but other than that and delivery issues which have little to do with the manufacture of the item, this ottoman is a decent one to buy.

In closing, we do not accept money, gifts or samples from furniture companies in exchange for special consideration in the preparation of our reviews.
