In my small and white-walled dorm room, this faux leather ottoman provides seating, storage, and a much-needed pop of color! It definitely looks more expensive than the $20-some I paid for it, and several guests have commented on its functionality and style. It’s perfect for storing bulky items that I don’t access often and trinkets that would otherwise clutter shelves. Meanwhile, it can be moved around the room to provide casual seating. This ottoman is special, though, because it folds: the walls collapse so you can fit the base into the lid, leaving a portable square that you can throw in a car trunk or underneath a bed. For a college student who relocates often, this portability is super appreciated!
