Q: I love everything about old houses…. except for the small doorways. I find myself ready to pull my hair out after two months of searching for the perfect sectional for the family room in our basement. We fell in love with the design of the Pearce 3-piece L-shaped sectional with wedge from Pottery Barn (see photo), but even after removing the cushions the seats would still be a couple of inches too tall to fit through our 27" door opening.
I'm finding some good mid-century modern and contemporary options online, but our style is more traditional-ish (think Lauren Liess' decorating style). Also, we'll likely be moving to a new home in the next 2-3 years, so we're not looking to spend a lot of money on a piece that may not work in our next home. Ideally, I'd like to find something L-shaped for around $2,500. Do any Apartment Therapy readers know of something that may work? Help!
P.S. We may or may not name our upcoming baby after the person who can help us find the perfect sectional... yes, we would be that indebted to you.
