So you overestimated the size of your doorway, and your new couch is stranded in the hall. Joe Zeolla—who comes with over 25 years of experience and recommendations from Bloomingdale’s, Domain, and many tony decorators—can tackle almost any piece, new or antique. If they can’t take it apart on the spot, Zeolla and his technicians will haul away the couch (or lounge chair or box spring), disassemble it in their warehouse, and return with the parts, which they’ll reassemble—upholstery and all—in your living room. The process takes about a week and costs $200 to $600.
