Moving Furniture/Will my armchair fit through a 29" doorway


Hi there,

I am looking to purchase the PB Basic Armchair from Pottery Barn, but am concerned that it won't fit through my narrow NYC doorway. The doorway to my living room is 29 inches wide. The overall dimensions for the chair are 38" w x 35"d x 35" h, and the back frame height is 29". The legs are not removable. There are no sharp turns or doors, so it's just a straight shot into the room. We moved a large couch and loveseat into this room with no issues, so I feel like this chair should fit, but I can't seem to get a definitive answer from anyone at Pottery Barn. And of course they don't stock this chair in the store so I can't see it in person.

Here is a link:

What do you think? Will it fit?

I hope I will be able to help :)

To be 100% certain all measurements of the furniture should be less than what the measurements of the clearance, however facts such as shape of the chair, arms and back that will allow chair to be tilted and or passed through the door - and thats the case with this chair - arms low so back can be passed through first than rest - should be fine.

It shoul dbe fine - let the delivery company deliver it and try it, hopefully will fit, in case if it did not fit there are companies who can disassemble and assemble it for you. One of the best companies I would suggest is "All Furniture Services" they very professional, they work 24/7 they do not charge extra for same day service and almost always they can send you someone right away. I'm not sure how much exactly they charge but it is very affordable and considering work I would say cheap. Their web: tel.: 1 718-268-2727, 1-646-688-4026
Good luck to you!
