I just received the ottoman yesterday and I am very happy with my purchase. The craftsmanship is superb and the ottoman is exactly as described and pictured. It is truly a beautiful piece of furniture and I would definitively purchase from this artist again.
I have several pieces made by the Rios family, so I knew this would be a great addition. It is stunning! I planned to use it as an ottoman but after seeing it, I'm moving it to the center focal point of my living room, next to the fireplace as a warming stool. I will occasionally allow my husband to use it as an ottoman though!
The leatherwork is beautiful and the stool as a whole is very solid and well made. It is definitely a conversation piece.
