Promising review: “I don’t know how this was only $50 some dollars. It’s so dang cute and holds a lot of items! I put our blankets inside. I have about 5 throws in there and still room for more.

The leather is soft and the lid closes slowly/stays open when getting things in and out. No assembly which is a big perk! Wiped down for cleaning well too.” —RayRay
