This is my first upholstered purchase. This small cube is very sturdy and the upholstered job was done beautifully. I chose a gray chevron pattern. See photo below. I love the versatility of the cube as I use it to put my feet on when watching TV or as an extra seat when I have company. I like that I can move it around my living room as needed. I would purchase another upholstered item in the future.
