Will your furniture fit?

In the excitement of purchasing new furniture it's important to check if the pieces you've chosen will actually fit into your home. A staircase with an angle, a narrow hallway or a small elevator can present a challenge. With this tool we hope to give you some tips to help you determine in advance if an item will fit into your home.
