When you sit down on a sofa to try it out, take into account the height and feel of the back as well. Do you prefer a tight-back sofa or one with loose cushions? Try out all different cushion configurations to see which one feels right. Do remember to take your shoes off before you place your feet on a sofa in a furniture store if that is your sitting style.
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.
Find an ornamental piece of wrought iron fence or a gate and have a wooden frame for it. Place a piece of 1/2 inch thick beveled-edge plate glass on top of the iron for a smooth surface. You can see that you can use almost anything for a coffee table. Keep in mind that the piece should be sturdy, properly proportioned, and durable, and it will give you great wear and convenience in any room.
