Good Questions: Should I Cut or Should I Go...Shopping?

Hello AT,

I don't think I am ever going to be able to get rid of my 4-year-old
Ikea crap Beddinge sofa beds! But not from want of trying...

I ordered the Cameron sleeper sofa from Crate and Barrel after much hunting in what can only be described as the "perfect-sofa-or-death" project. They tried to deliver it this morning but it wouldn't fit in my building's narrow-low-ceiling passage. The delivery guy said nothing over 80 inches long would fit...

So now my choices are:
1. get a smaller sofa-bed; or
2. get one of those teams that can take the sofa apart and rebuild it
in my living room.

Not sure which option is better. My living space is pretty big (which
kind of reminds me of an igloo right now: large room small entry
passage - what were the builders smoking?) so I would prefer a larger
piece. But, option 2 seems like a mega project and this is a rental
apartment so when I move the break and remake happens all over again.

Thank you for letting me vent. Would love to hear your suggestions/
