I saw this today on the shelves and had to get one. I live with other people and have a share a small bedroom with my boyfriend so anything that can serve multiple purposes is great for my small amount of space. I mainly wanted to store things and use as a footstool when I'm on my computer but it functions as a seat, although it's not the most comfortable thing to sit on. It is extremely easy to set up and collapse. It's sturdiness as a seat is still a tad questionable but it held me just fine at 120lbs. I got the plaid. I would have gone with black but I also didn't care for the mesh material over the black. They also had the teal, which was very soft and fuzzy. I am overall happy with this purchase.
