Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderfully versatile for office and decor This storage ottoman has exceeded my wishes. It fits perfectly beneath a small secretary desk in my dining room. When I need to access files, I just roll it out. Storage capacity is huge. The hinge supporting the lid is sturdy. I used the Suzanne Kasler greige linen. This can easily be used for extra seating or would be great as a coffee table by topping it with a snazzy tray. Quality is high and it's a great value. Always get a fabric sample and carefully measure to avoid unhappy surprises! April 25, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed with the hinge on lid. Very poor quality. I have opened the lid of the ottoman less than 10 times and yet the screws have come off the hinge, and the lid is hanging crooked. August 12, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nice but the lid hinge broke Like one of the other reviewers, I had a problem with the hinge on the lid. It didn't keep falling on me but where it screwed into the frame it kept coming undone and after a while, the place to screw in the plate had no good place left for the screws. So now, I'm going to remove my files and just use it as an ottoman where the lid stays on. Other than that, like Ballard, the fabric was excellent and it was fitted to the ottoman beautifully. The ottoman was kind of big but I should have expected the size given it was to hold files. May 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exquisite and sturdy. Purchased this on sale in Document Brown and I was very pleased with the product. It took about 3 weeks to be delivered via UPS. March 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than I expected I needed a place to store the hanging files in our old computer desk because I am going to replace the desk with more of a writing table. I am planning to purchase the Whitley desk from Ballard. So the storage ottoman is perfect - well made, castors roll easy, top lifts easily but not too easily that my one-yr-old will be able to get into it. The top also stays up while I am looking for a particular file. I love this addition to our home office - what a great alternative to a plain, old file box. March 7, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very very poor quality and damaged I usually do not waste my time writing reviews, I just return the product. But this item is so not what I expected that I had to. Not sure where the other reviews came from but the ottoman I received (after waiting for it 6 weeks) had nails sticking out from everywhere and the fabric was ripped up in 4 places. The seat was unevenly set atop the filing area and the seat hinges were barely screwed in. Very poor quality and craftsmanship. January 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice item I loved the fabric texture, color and design. I love the idea of an apolstered file cabinet as it is so homey for an office. The lid hinges were not applied evenly so the lid is a little off-kilter. It should really be fixed but I don't have the time or patience for a return. I like the item regardless. May 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy, functional, attractive This is a great product. It holds a lot of files, is extremely well made, and looks very nice. Sturdy lid stays propped open when accessing files. Perfect organization solution for keeping up with filing and having documents handy, without needing to make a spot for unstylish filing boxes or cabinets. May 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Far better than I even dreamed of!! I wish I had ordered this file storage ottoman years ago. The quality is amazing. I loved being able to choose my fabric, and the real thing is even better than the photo of the fabric. The file cabinet is extremely sturdy, and I was impressed with the ample storage. The rollers allow me to store the ottoman under a table in my living room, then pull it out to get to my files or to use the ottoman for seating. Terrific quality and value! April 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased Very pleased with the quality and appearance of the file ottoman, and it works great for file storage. It is comfortable to sit on, rolls easily, and blends in very nicely in the room as an extra seat or foot rest. This has worked out beautifully as a way to have some office storage in the living room. November 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works hard, looks good I've bought two of these now and they're an excellent way of hiding your filing. My first was in the Document fabric and it's just gorgeous; the second doesn't look quite so fabulous as I chose a very plain fabric (necessary to work with the rest of the room). Possibly a little tall for an ottoman (doesn't stop me putting my feet up) and works as a small coffee table too. Seems well made, solid, hinges behave well. Of course, allow *several* weeks for arrival. September 15, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by awesome product, missing key feature I really like this ottoman. They did a great job, and I love the fabric. The only thing missing is a piece to keep the lid open while I'm filing. The arm is so bendy that is has a habit of falling closed on my arm while I'm filing papers. Nothing a zip-tie can't fix I'm sure. June 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish, practical and well made This storage ottoman is not only built to last for years, but it is a stylish and properly-sized addition to any room's decor. It's tall enough to double as seating, has incredible hanging file space, plus extra storage for binders or other files. The heavy-duty rollers are a nice touch, too. I could not be happier with my ottoman and am thinking about getting another one. Highly recommended for anyone with a home office. March 16, 2011
