ottoman schmottoman

Looking for the perfect ottoman? Well, I have been. The thing is, the dimensions need to be just right for my room. It's a smaller living room, or maybe I just have way too much stuff crammed in already, but anyway, it needs to be approximately than 48" x 20" x 18". I want a turned leg with casters (I think) and either a kilim/tapestry remnant top, or maybe a leather top, or maybe a tufted linen cushion top? I used to think tufting was too funereal but now...I like it. Anyone care to chime in? Below is my not-so-short-list. For the price, this is the front-runner but the dimensions are just a little too long. Restoration Hardware, Tufted Bench , 54"w x 20"d x 18"h, and $445 as seen in Belgium Lenin. No turned leg or casters here but I love the clean lines, and simplicity of the leather cushion top. From Hickory Chair, I think this bad boy runs about $1300. Alec Bench , 19"h x 30.5"w x 16"d. The French Stripe Bench , 4
