Like it A Lot
I'd been looking for a large ottoman for quite some time, visiting a lot of other websites and many department stores. This one stood out because it was so cheap (honestly) and it's the minimum length we needed.
Pros - Just need to screw the legs in - comes in one box, already installed (others said they needed to install the hinges). Oddly this came the next day (wow!). The hinge is smooth opening and shutting. Lots of space inside for storage. The color is a rich brown. It's soft to the touch and seems to be well made. I may order another for our bedroom as it's the same color as our leather bed.
Cons - when you put your feet on it the material gives/sags, hopefully it doesn't stay that way after several weeks of use. If there was a 4 1/2 star option I would give it 4 1/2 stars.

So Beautiful and Elegant!
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! I bought this to fit in the entryway of my home. Very sturdy, well-made and the stitching gives it an added touch of detail to it's already elegant look.I was searching for months for a storage bench to keep shoes in. After seeing several, I went with the Simpli Home Avalon Faux Leather. The other choices were a bit deep or were made of wood. I chose this for it's narrow depth, softness and a great space for storing shoes. I topped with a couple of throw pillows and it serves as a bench to sit while taking shoes on and off. I'm very happy with my purchase! Highly recommend.

as much as we like the look of it
Unfortunately, as much as we like the look of it, it started to fall apart within weeks. The ottoman seems to be made out of some sort of hard cardboard, and one of the sides, by the hinges, has bowed. The hinge started to unscrew itself due to the pressure of the bowing.
In short, we feel we wasted $150. We are disappointed to say the least!

Great product! Not as large as you would think though.
We thought this was going to be a bit bigger but other then that this is a great product. Our 2 year old jumps up and down on it, my cat has retracted his claws into it, we have spilled food on it, and all this and it hasn't even been a month of ownership yet. Its still in new condition. No damage, smells new, etc.
Definitely worth the money, since its not that expensive to begin with. Shipping was lovely, it came a in a long box ready to use.

I Love It! It has given me more seating and storage in my great room!
My 325 lb son, his wife and their 3 children sat on this storage ottoman for Christmas photos. One person can sit on either end and it will not tilt over. It is strong and durable. It is light to pick up but strong and has lots of space for storage. My other family members wanted to know where I purchased it. It was a great price! It arrived earlier than the scheduled date!

Much Lower than Other Benches!
I just received my storage bench, which came fully assembled, except for screwing on the 2" legs. It has a nice, taylored look. The gray reads a little bluish to me, but that could be lighting dependent. The top is nicely padded and soft to the touch, although not nearly as soft to actually sit on. The real issue with this piece is its height -- or lack thereof. Unfortunately, I did not notice this in the description. Unaccountably, it is lower than most other benches. With the feet on, it measures 15 1/2 " tall. The average dining chair, for example, is 17-19" tall. I found a site, www.tablelegs.com, which sells sets of legs in sizes from 2" on up, and I will have to buy a new set of legs at a minimum of $7.95/ea (depending on length) for this bench to make it usable as a bench at the end of our bed for putting on our shoes. It will also throw the proportions off a bit, but at least we won't hurt ourselves when we try to sit on it.

Well made, serves its purpose
It looks rich and is an enhancement to our bedroom at the foot of the bed as we needed a little more accessible storage for my husband. He wishes there was a little more clearance room on the lid instead of it fitting flat but he has it stuffed already! We would definitely recommend!

Arrived super fast, is lightweight so easy for me to ...
I needed this in my guest room so that visitors could have a place to sit/put their suitcase down. Arrived super fast, is lightweight so easy for me to move around. I have not decided what to use the inside for yet however, I'm sure I'll think of something. My only wish was that I would have read the description closer - I'd have liked one a wee bit taller. But, it was a great price, it's going to work just fine. Love it!

Received wrong color.
Minus 1 because I ordered fawn brown, but received slate grey. Not a huge deal to me, but I could see that being a big problem for others. (My first thought was "How am I supposed to return this thing?") Kept it because it is a nice box and will still work with what we have. One of the legs screwed in unevenly- even after several careful attempts. Putting it on carpeting, so no big deal. I bought this as a toy box for my toddler, and I really like the child-safe hinge. The hinges push back to lock the lid open, but it stays open in any position until pushed closed. It doesn't fit a lot, but that just means we can't buy any more toys... ;)

Works and appears as advertised
Doing what it's supposed to do... storing bedding at the foot end of our bed. Simple, neat, sturdy design. Hinges hold the lid in the open position nicely. Lined interior. Padded lid. All in all, it's a nice looking piece that does what it's supposed to do. We're happy with it and would recommend it to anyone looking for the same type of item. Once again, 2DayDeliver made purchasing the item easy, hassle free and it was delivered on time. Well done 2DayDeliver.
