Faux Leather 1/4 Round Fold-Up Storage Ottoman by Valerie
Helped with storing things I need to get to easily
I recently moved in with my daughter and her family. I purchased 4 of these making them into a circle. Each is for specific use. 1 - aquarium supplies 2 - dog supplies 3 - my diabetes and meds 4 - snacks ! I love how I can lift the lid I need w/o moving things off the entire unit.
Great for storage
I bought the espresso brown and like it for the storage capacity. My only complaint is that the lid does not sit well in a notched top area. Other than that, I think its great. It folds up for storage and is light weight. It also seems to be surprisingly sturdy. Happy Ottomaning!!!!!!
to put together. I like that I can use it for storage or even a chair in an emergency. It fits easily in corner.
Love It, Love It, Love It
I was skeptical about ordering these, but I figured I would try. I love them. They fold up great and open up great. They are so comfortable to sit on and they have plenty room for my throws to be in when not in use. I am ordering two more just to have a complete circle or plenty of sitting room when I have people over.,
Taking A Chance On These
I purchased the chocolate brown ottoman and the color matches my dining room furniture perfectly. I think these 1/4 round ottomans are unique. The only thing is, the binding that goes all the way around the bottom of the ottoman is really twisted. Not on the straight edges but on the rounded edge. It makes the whole thing look cheap and ugly. With tax and shipping, I paid $64.06 for one of these. I feel that the price is way too high on this product to be this kind of quality. Plus, I agree with some of the other reviews about the lids not fitting on these. They do not sit flush properly and they could slide off when someone sits on them. Another problem with the quality on these items. I shipped it back the very next day. I took a chance and ordered two more of the chocolate ottomans because I really do like them BUT, I hope that the quality on these will be acceptable. If not, you know the rest. I will recommend if the quality has improved. Three stars because of the fact that I had to return this item due to the poor quality.
Much larger than I expected!
Even though I saw the video and even though I read the product specifications, I was quite pleasantly surprised when I opened the box today (it arrived yesterday) to see how big this is. I'd been thinking about the square fold up ottomans for quite some time. When I decided to have Thanksgiving at my house this year with the families of my two best friends, I thought I could use something like that. It wasn't until I started looking online at the square ones that I even realized that the 1/4 round ones existed!
I ordered two. I'm happy that the 1/4 round and the square one that I got are the exact same color! I expect the children to make use of these for seating during the holiday. Then I'll be using them for storage afterwards. They can be used in so many ways. And what a bonus that they can be folded up and put away if necessary. But as attractive as they are, I doubt I'll want to hide them ever.
I'm now a very happy owner of two 1/4 rounds and 2 of the square ones. Thank you Valerie and thank you QVC for such beautiful and functional pieces!
Just right for an odd space-
I was happy to find this in olive. It fits in a little nook in my kitchen by the stair landing (across from my duraflame :) It provides an extra seat when everyone congregates in the kitchen and doesn't take up much space. The rest of the time it stores my Shark mop accessories.
This ottoman is in the master bedroom ,fits nicely in a corner .I got the olive colour .The quality is so good and looks expensive .Strong enough to sit on and has storage as well .Get this you can't go wrong .Looks better than on tv .
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this ottoman. I have been looking for months at ottomans and the prices were out of this world. I wanted functionability as well as a good price. This fits the bill for me. I would recommend it.
Love this. Set it at an angle near the dresser in the bedroom. Keep my every day cardigans in it. What a lovely accent piece and so useful.
Nice for the Price
I ordered one of each color and put them together in my living room. I just liked the way they looked. All of mine were in excellent condition and looked nice. The storage is nice and they are comfortable to sit on, just the right size for just about anyone, especially kids. I wish they made one of these in blue as I would order some for our downstairs family room.
I will admit these ottomans are very attractive - but as another reviewer wrote: the lids do not sit flush onto the top. I bought two of them and one fits a little better than the other. Fortunately - I have bought other items from Valerie and have no complaints with them . . . . however - this one misses the mark. And again, as was mentioned by another: due to the awkward placement of the lid with it not fitting properly - I would never sit on one or allow a guest or pet to do so either. I will keep them because the reasons I purchased them were the shape and for storage of my dogs' toys when company visits - but there should have been a little better quality control.
