Moving Furniture/Can I fit this through my doorway?

Question
First of all, thanks so much for providing this advice online!!!

Second: My front door has about 79" of clearance height-wise, and 34" width, assuming I remove the door. My ceilings are 90". Here's a little video showing the entry - as you can see, there's a left turn to get in, and then a right turn down the hallway:

I love ornate, old-fashioned furniture, and had actually ordered this couch, but then cancelled because I couldn't imagine it would fit, at 95W x 37D x 40H, even with the legs off:

Then I found this online, at 68W x 38D x 40H, but I'm still not sure it would fit:

What do you think?

Answer
Hi Lev
thank you for all your help. Take the door off the hinges, take the legs off and you'll be fine. If you don't mind can I make a suggestion. When it comes to this type of furniture be careful. From a picture they look really beautiful but you really should go and find it on a showroom floor. Just so you know what your buying. If they have a warranty plan take it and read it and use it. Sometimes these places offer a warranty on there furniture which covers stains and SOME dfcts gives you a peace of mind .
Now if you want I don't know which side of the world your on but there is a service on both sides that offer a disassemble service by professionals. In the Uk there called sofaassist and here it depends on what state . Get any sofa in. That's if you really want the big monster.
Get back to me I'll give you all the info. Peace Love and Happiness
