This item seemed to be a little pricey, just for something to put your feet on, but it is definately worth it. I loved the first one so much that I ordered another one! For me they were the perfect size, not to big or heavy, just the right size and weight. It is easy to move, but not too light that a breezy would blow away. I could even see the ottoman doubling as a seat for a child. The only thing that would make this product better would be for the price to be lower, but don't we wish that for everything we purchase in this economy.
We have a duplex unit and wanted something to set on the patio to help divide the two porch halves as well as be a good place to set plants or put your feet up etc. This "something" also needed to be nice to look at and weather proof. This ottoman accomplishes all of the above and would make a welcome addition to anyone's patio collection.
