This is one of the greatest things I ever bought and it took me quite some time to find the one I wanted. I wanted some kind of storage bench for the main floor to keep all of Kimball's toys and various necessities out of view and in one place. I found this one in UT at TJ Maxx and the faux leather goes great with the rest of the furniture. I love that everything he needs is all in one place, from diapers and wipes to lotion and digital thermometer. The best part? He can choose his owns toys and get them all by himself! And of course when not in use, the lids goes on and adds additional seating to the living room.
