Fitting a sofa through a doorway 2010-04-06
From Yvonne:
Hi, I would be most grateful if you could help me, because I have no idea how to work this out! I am moving from a house to a flat, and the doors in the flat are 70 cm wide. I have a sofa 88 x 88 x 215. Will it go through the door if we tip it sideways at an angle?

Thanks, Yvonne Beck
