Moving Furniture/Moving a couch into apartment


I am considering buying a new couch for my apartment, but I am very concerned it wont fit in my doors. I have two doors it needs to fit through, and they are about three feet away from each other separated by a small mudroom. The doors are 80" tall and "31 wide. The couch is 88"L, 39"H, and 37"D. I'm not sure how tall the arms are, but I've included a link below to an image of the couch if that helps you estimate. The back cushions are sewn in, but the bottom cushions come off. I don't know if the legs come off. What do you think? Thanks for your help!

Hi Jenna
We need to call the company where you buying it from and ask them for the true height of the sofa with the legs off and up to the wood, cause you can press the cushions down. Also the legs should come off and that will give you 3 to 4 inches there. See if the doors can come off the hinges fairly easy and that will get you another 1-2 inches . These doors have to be exactly uniform with each other if not and one door is slightly to the left or right its a no go. Not enough room in the mud space for maneuvering. Because the doors are so close together there really is only one way for this sofa to get in. Can't stand it up to maneuver not enough space So the height of the sofa has to be less than the width of the doors . I believe the true height of the sofa is closer to 28 to 30 inches once the legs are off. But don't hold me to that. Make sure you call them. Peace Love and Happiness
