Will my B Chair Fit?
A handy guide to setting up more mindful moments.
Establishing mindfulness hassle free? Sounds like a plan. To make sure this happens, we suggest you double-double check the dimensions of your space and entrance ways before placing your order. That way you’ll know that you will be able to place your B Chair exactly where you have in mind.
Let’s get measuring
First, note down the dimensions of the B Chair (as shown below). You’ll need to compare these measurements to those around your home.
Getting through the door – option 1
Open your door as wide as possible and measure from the outer edge of the door to the inner edge of the door frame remembering any wriggle room (and fingers!). Always measure from the narrowest point. Record your measurement.
doorway width ……………
Getting through the door – option 2
If option 1 doesn’t work then our delivery team will try to carry the sofa upright through the door. Record the height of your door frame.
doorway height ……………
Top tip: To work out the turning circle, cut a rectangular piece of card to the sofa frame height x depth dimensions. If you can walk the template from the front doorway to the room of choice, rotating through 90° where required, then your sofa will most likely fit.
Turning and manoeuvring your B Chair
Unless you have a straight run from your front door to the room of choice, the B chair may need to swivel and turn at some point. When its upright, the B Chair will need a big enough ‘turning circle’ to allow it to rotate 90° to get around corners before moving into your room of choice.
When sizing up consider possible obstructions such as radiators, open doors, picture and dado rails. If the sofa needs to be lowered from an upright position, e.g. to go through a doorway, consider ceiling height and whether light fittings may obstruct access.

Going up stairs
Remember that scene from Friends? Measure the width of your stairs at their narrowest point (don’t forget to account for handrails and light fixtures).
If there’s a landing then measure the width, depth and height of your landing. If you have a bannister and need to lift it over, check that the distance between the bannister and the ceiling is greater than the depth of the sofa at the narrowest height so we can PIVOT if needed.
Still unsure if it will fit?
Consider alternative access points e.g. large windows, the back door, side entrances (no cat flaps though) and give our experts a call to discuss your options. Where there’s a will, there’s usually a way.
Our delivery trucks are fairly big, 7½ tons so if access to your house is limited please let us know. As a rule of thumb, if a rubbish truck can get to you, so can we (we won’t empty the bins though). If a smaller vehicle is required then let us know when you place your order.
