Moving Furniture/Getting an armchair into our flat


Hello there,

We want to buy an IKEA armchair ( but the entrance into our flat is very tight.  

The width of the entrance is 63cm and the height is 195cm.  The door leads directly to stairs and there is little (few cm) give after the entrance to twist.

Will we be able to get this chair in?

Many thanks,


Hi Shane
First the legs come off. Which help, but I need to know the width of the stairwell.
Once through the front door do you make a turn to the left or right or is it straight in?
Is there room between the entry and the stairs ? Its a wing back chair but with the legs off helps in angling and maneuvering. The fact that its a chair not many don't . Don't you have a refrigerator, or an oven upstairs. Is there nothing upstairs ? Unless there's something your not expressing to me something you see that I don't that makes this a difficult delivery. You should be fine. Peace Love and Happiness
