Learn how to measure for worry-free delivery
You think you’ve found the one; a sofa that checks all your boxes for style and comfort. You’ve found a fabric that’s pet-friendly and in the perfect shade of grey, with enough seats for the whole family. But will it fit?
We’d hate to see you fall in love with a piece of furniture, only to bring it home and realize it doesn’t fit through your door. We’ve developed this guide to teach you how to measure for your space with techniques to determine if that sofa you’re eyeing will make it through the door.
First, let’s review our dimension standards. Imagine the item is placed up against a wall in its natural position.
Measuring For Delivery
Step 1. Measure Your Entryway
Use a tape measure to determine the height (A) and width (B) of your entryway hallways and doors.
Next, measure the entry clearance/depth (C).
Repeat for any walls or turns directly past the entry door. If elevator use is necessary to reach your apartment or condo, you will need to measure the elevator doorway and interior as well.
Step 2. Measure Your Furniture
For Sofas, measure the width (D) and diagonal depth (E). The diagonal depth can be measured by using a straight edge from the highest point of the back frame to the front of the arm. Then measure from the bottom back corner of the sofa up to the point that bisects the straight edge.
For tall case items like a display cabinet or bookcase, measure the diagonal height (F) at the widest point of the item, and the depth (G).
Step 3. Compare the Dimensions
Sofa width must be less than entryway dimension A
Diagonal sofa depth must be less than entryway B
Diagonal height must be less than entryway dimension A
Depth must be less than entryway dimension B
Note: The guidelines above do not guarantee your purchase will fit through your entryway. Please also note any additional obstacles, such as ceiling fans, banisters, wall art, and walls or turns directly past the entry door. We also recommend clearing the floor of any rugs or debris that might get in the way of delivery. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure merchandise fits properly. Charges and restocking fees will apply if a change is approved for an order per all store policies!
