Every person differs in what they consider to be comfortable. Some would like a sofa they can sink into, while others prefer a firmer seat. Which one do you like? Try sitting on different fills to select the level of firmness or softness that you like. Consider if you want the same level of softness or firmness in the seat and back. They do not have to be the same.
When you have a sofa that dates back over a century, and you have invested good money in it, reupholstering it makes sense. This is not something that can be replaced by a brand new sofa. In this case, by reupholstering, you are actually restoring an antique. However, if this is an investment, this should not be attempted on your own. Get a qualified professional to do it, and it is going to be costly.
The next step is to measure the height—measure the back at the highest point. For instance, a camel-back sofa will be highest in the center. Measure from there to the floor because sometimes sofa legs are attached. If the sofa legs are screwed on, you might be able to get away with just measuring from the top to the bottom of the sofa. If that measurement passes through the entryway, then you can screw the legs on once you have the sofa inside the room.
