We’ve gone down a very parallel path, I removed our “L” shaped sofa and replaced it with the Thomas Payne theater seating from CW.
Sofa removal was pretty straight forward. The back has a clip mechanism that allows it to be removed from the bottom. Examine the sofa back hinge. My clips were covered with a fabric flap that was velcro’d In place.
IIRC the half of the bed portion required a couple of bolts to be removed and it then came out. The bed end of the sofa was screwed to the “L” portion which was screwed to a short wall that divides the living/kitchen areas. None of it was attached to the floor. I started by looking for things that had to be removed to get it into pieces and once I got going it was pretty simple. To simplify things I cut the back cushions off and removed them separately (the whole thing was headed to the dump anyway).
We already had a couple of recliners which we “recline” in but watching anyone trying to be comfortable on the sofa was painful. I may or may not attach the new stuff to the floor. The recliners are not attached and don’t move around in transit so I’m not in a hurry to screw down the new sofa.
We started with the 3 pieces that make the sofa and I found I had enough room for one of the center armrest piece. It should be delivered today. I found removing and installing to be a 2 person job.
Very pleased with the new sofa, very comfy!
