Rated 5 out of 5 by TweetieinAZ Downsizing Dream
I'd had my eye on this functional ottoman for months before I finally jumped in and bought it. It is perfect for our downsizing into a smaller home. It's the perfect coffee table when a tray is used on top, has ideal storage for a throw/blanket, and can be rolled against the wall to seat two when our family comes over. So glad we did this.

by JAGG Sharp corners under fabric
We've had this ottoman for 2 years now and after banging our knees one too many times we decided to write a review. The corners are very sharp under the fabric. There is no padding covering the corners on the lid. Maybe the corners should be rounded a bit or just have the padding wrap around the lid, not just have the padding on the top? Still like the look of this ottoman but really no safer than a coffee table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Georgirl I really like everything about this product.
The material is nice the color is perfect and I am wondering why I waited so long to order it. Product is finished so well and I am so delighted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bimbels Fabric quickly faded
We are very disappointed with the quality of the fabric on this ottoman. We ordered the navy cotton duck and it quickly (after a few months) faded in places - even though it is not in direct sunlight. The point of a cushioned ottoman coffee table is to be able to put your feet up on it - and it seems to be faded most where it gets that use. We don't put our shoes on it and keep a clean house so it's puzzling why the fabric faded in this way. We've now owned it for a couple of years and are considering whether to have it recovered or chuck it and start over. It was a great price but this is definitely a case of getting what you pay for.

would like it longer and narrower, but it works as a bench seat or storage at end of bed. legs are dark brown not black like I thought.

After searching for months for a leather tufted ottoman with these details and size and not finding one, I saw this one in the catalog. Although not offered in leather, I purchased it in the espresso microfiber and am beyond thrilled. I got the look and the size I wanted with the bonus of the storage - which I wasn't even looking for! It is sturdy and well crafted. Took only a few minutes of assembly and looks fabulous in our living room as a ottoman/coffee table. I'd recommend it highly!

This ottoman is great! Very beautiful from it's tufting to the wood legs to the wheels (except I wish they rolled more easily - more for show than function). The storage is key too. You get a lot of value for it's price. It's very comfortable to put your feet up on and also sturdy enough to balance a tray. Highly recommend!

The fabric was exactly how the photo represented it to be. Assembly was easy (just screw on the legs) and it's a beautiful piece that provides seating and storage for my small-ish living room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CouchPotato This storage ottoman is both beautiful and functional
This ottoman arrived in four weeks but was well worth the wait. The fabric is durable. The construction is top-notch. The top lifts to expose a very generous storage area. Definitely a beautiful and functional addition to any room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Atlcustomer Looks great, but hinge broken after a month.
The ottoman arrived just fine and looked great, but shortly after using it, the hinge was completely stripped. We now have to find a box big enough for the ottoman to repackage it ourselves so that we can attempt to have the company to fix it. What a hassle!!!

I love this ottoman! It is beautifully crafted and such high quality. I shopped for a long time, nothing compared to Ballard Designs. I will be a returning customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gingersnap Love this ottoman!
I have been wanting this ottoman for over a year, but really didn't want to spend that much money on an ottoman. I looked at many, many others which were cheaper, but knew I would never be satisfied with them. I finally gave in and spent the money, and am so glad I did. This piece is quality+. I am using it in place of a coffee table, and the size is perfect. (Larger than a lot of the others I looked at.) It is firm yet comfortable, and sturdy. I love the tufting and piping, and the storage is an added bonus. Also love the velvet fabric.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Very poor quality
Bought this piece two years ago for our living room and it's already been demoted to the basement. The upholstery is coming apart and we had to remove all the casters after one broke. Granted, we have young children who beat up on it quite a bit. But still, I was expecting to get more than two years out of it. Disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steelers4ever Beautiful and well crafted
We wanted a sturdy bench for the end of our bed and this one has been awesome. Many benches seem decorative rathere than functional. This one is very sturdy and is the perfect place for my husband to sit and put shoes and socks on in the mornings. It is also beautiful. So a winner all the way around!

I love the ottoman. The spring on one side of the top was damaged, but we took it home and fixed in 5 minutes ourselves. The ottoman was JUST what we were looking for, and our kitty has already found a new comfy place to nap!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by bellwoman This product does have great features
I really do like this ottoman despite the fact that it came poorly upholstered and is being remade because of areas that weren't sewn and had pulled apart during shipment. It was a bit of a hassle trying to connect with the correct department and receive prompt response. Since it was a COM I had to reorder the fabric (love the fabric) and will need to reship it once it arrives. Besides all of that, the ottoman is firm like I wanted it. When I sit on it I don't worry about it sagging. I love that it has the storage area. My only real concern is that there isn't padding around the sides. When I rest my legs on it I have to always think about where you place them for fear of having the wood wear through the fabric. If I could change one thing about it, it would be padding around the edges. Otherwise once I get my replacement I hope to be thrilled with the upholstery and that the wood doesn't poke through.

We are very happy with the Tufted Storage Ottoman. It is well made with high quality fabric. We especially like the fact that the inside is fabric lined. It looks great and we couldn't be happier.

We had no room for recliners. So we did away with our coffee table and brought in the ottoman on wheels! Ballard did a great job of upholstering using our own fabric. And the ottoman arrived within the estimated delivery date. The piece is very heavy and nice quality. It has lots of storage space inside, and is easily rolled for putting our feet up or using it as a coffee table. I am so glad we made this purchase. It is a lovely piece and the focal point of our room.

I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I was looking everywhere for a rectangular table/ottoman and this one fit the bill. It works perfectly as a table, chair and ottoman, plus there is loads of storage space.

My new ottoman looks fabulous in my family room. It was upholstered with Ballard Design's fabric and turned out better than I could have imagined. The buttons that hold the tufts down are very secure. I know this because my dogs take turns sitting on the ottoman and like to sniff the buttons. It was an excellent purchase and value for the money.

I love, love, love my new ottoman. It's unique because I chose an unusual fabric, but it is soo very comfortable to rest my feet on, and large enough to sit a tray for wine and cheese as well. The storage part is my secret advantage- I store a pillow and blanket for when my godchildren need to nap on the sofa. I'm so happy that I didn't settle for a run-of-the mill piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mollyreader Great value
I was having trouble finding a high quality ottoman in this size for under $900 and was very happy to find this one from Ballard for ~$500. It arrived in excellent condition, was very easy to assemble (you just have to screw the legs on), and looks great. It feels and looks more expensive than it is. The only downside is that it took over 2 months to arrive, but at the price and final result, it was worth the wait.
Also, I recommend ordering the free swatches Ballard offers --this helped me pick the exact color I wanted.

I love this ottoman! I got it in dark chocolate velvet & it looks great in the sitting room of my bedroom suite. it's quite large and feels very sturdy & well made. the wheels make it covenient to move between the chair and the couch; it has ample storage and the hinge doesn't allow it to slam down. I am very happy with this purchase!
