Dear Style Studio,

I have a TV room upstairs but the doorway is 27-and-a-half-by-80 inches. The stairwell leading up to it is three feet wide.

I would like to put a comfy couch but am not sure what will fit through the doorway and I’m not too fond of beanbags.

Any suggestions?

Your narrow doorway is certainly a challenge but we think we have a great solution for your space!

As you can see from the floorplan we created for you, we recommend creating a group of swivel chairs as a starting point for your television room.

Our Chaffie Swivel in Cisco Charcoal Easycare is a spectacular option because it is 27 1/2″ wide … perfect fit for your door.

Place the chairs on top of our Bryant Dhurri Rug for a bold and whimsical contrast in scale and then position a large ottoman in the middle of the chairs.

Our solution to a sofa dilemma is our Louis Daybed in black finish. Because it comes disassembled, it is an easy fit through your tight door. Throw in a pair of Leather Pouf’s in graphite for quick seating and a side table or two as a resting place for drinks.

For a couple of finishing touches, flank your television cabinet with our Union Floor Lamps and lots of fresh color pillows for the daybed. You are done … a room ready for entertaining and media watching!

Happy Decorating!
