Cory Rolling Storage Ottoman from La-Z-Boy | Pretty Handy Girl

I’m in love with Cory and all the things he does for me. I can’t believe I just wrote that sentence, but it’s true. Cory has been with me for about two months now and he has easily won over my heart.

Honest, I’m not cheating on my husband. Cory is our rolling storage ottoman from La-Z-Boy. He scoots up close to our sofa and holds my feet after a long day. During the day, we spend a lot of time together, because this has become my favorite spot to blog.)

Before I go on gushing about Cory, I should tell you that this is a sponsored post for La-Z-Boy and they let me custom design Cory for my home. But, I never realized how much I would love him until he came into my living room.

When the La-Z-Boy design consultant first recommended an upholstered ottoman, I was hesitant. I worried that we wouldn’t have anywhere to set our drinks. But, she told me that I just needed to give Cory a tray to hold drinks and other necessities.

The tray is a wonderful thing because it keeps our remote controls corralled. Previously, our coffee table used to become a big mess of magazines, mail and several buried remotes.

I also worried that an upholstered ottoman would look like a big elephant in the room.

Far from it. He is the perfect size to provide leg rest for up to three adults. Cory can also be wheeled around and used for extra seating when we have guests.

But, the thing I love most about Cory is this:

He hides an abundance of pillows and blankets. There are plenty of wii remotes and games under that pile of pillows as well.

Although, I discourage the kids from playing inside Cory, I can rest at ease because there are two generous air holes on the bottom and the hinges hold the weight of the lid at any angle.

I hope you understand why I fell so hard for this gorgeous guy. He is beautiful to look at and he never complains when dinner isn’t ready. I think I’m going to enjoy having him around for a while.

Don’t you want your own personal Cory, too?

Be sure to stop by next week. I’ve been giving you some sneak peeks of the living room makeover, but I’m finally going to show you the whole room. You won’t want to miss it.

    I would love to have aCory in our house, I love the idea of having a stylish but purposeful “hiding place” for the afghans and remotes, that also gives us a place to put our feet up instead of just taking up space! I love the lichen fabric 🙂

    I think I love Cory, too! He would be the perfect size for our living room. I got rid of our coffee table back when my son was a toddler. He’s 6.5 and I still haven’t replaced it with anything. Many of the ottomans I’ve seen are too large or too small. I think this is a good size and I can always use extra seating and storage. I definitely would want a pattern so I think the color :Jade (P115194)Cover Pattern:Mod Layout (P115194) is the way to go.

    This would be perfect to replace our coffee table with active toddlers running around. I would like a linen type fabric I think.

    OOOOH! I am in love with Cory too! He is fabulous! I love that gorgeous blue ikat pattern that you picked as well. That would be my upholstery choice for sure. THANKS to you and La-Z-Boy for such an awesome opportunity to win.

    So hard to choose. They have fabulous selection. What caught my eye is Cardinal (L134907), since it would give a bold splash of color to my otherwise plain and monochromatic living room. How generous of the folks at La-Z-Boy to do this.

    I really like the julep fabric, but I’m not sure it would match our family room… Hmm maybe I should get a new couch too! 🙂
