We were looking for a pair of ottomans for our family room that could also be used as a coffee table if necessary. Most places offer pretty cheap imitations and you have to be carful of the materials it's made of if you want them to last. We went into this store and was quite impressed with the look of the furnishings they had, quite interesting, better than the standard stuff you find elsewhere. We saw a nice ottoman, exactly what we were looking for, and the great part about it was there was a label saying made in Canada. Wow, even better. So you would think it must be good quality. Not so fast. When the order came in and we picked them up, the box clearly had the label, made in China stamped all over it. When we complained, the owner said that the materials are made here, but that they are shipped to China and assembled there. We've been living with these ottomans for about 2 years, and we are noticing some minor wear a tear, some minor loose threads, screw caps falling off showing screw heads. We'll make use of them as long as we see fit. But beware of what you see on labels printed by the store. Don't take it for face value unless you see it on a manufacturer's website, product label fixed to the product made by the manufacturer, etc..
