Most recliners and other similar pieces of furniture have removable backs which when taken off will allow passage through the door. If you turn the piece on end or on its side and look underneath, there is usually a catch that, when released, will allow you to remove the back.
To reattach, just slide the back down into its normal position and it will click into place.
I'm not sure if the backs of sofas can be removed in the same way.
