This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
ETA: I have added a separate zip file with the ULDUM matching bedding and Monochrome ULDUM Rug recolour.

You can never have enough furniture matching lamps.

With a lot of help from HeartDeco (Debra) I made a floor lamp to match the Maxis Lost and Found Ikea SKIMRA Lamp by TheNinthWave and added 2 base recolours and shade recolours, to match the IKEA Home Stuff pack EKTORP living chair, love seat & sofa, to match the ULDUM Rug and in LACK colours. You can find the Monochrome ULDUM Rug and matching Bedding HERE. I did make a mistake and have the wrong red in some of the screenshots, sorry.

As a bonus I remapped the base and also recoloured the Maxis Lost and Found Ikea SKIMRA Lamp by TheNinthWave. You can find many more recolours of the table lamp HERE.

These are base game compatible - no EP's or SP's required!

Cloned From: Eloquence Elongated Floor Lamp.

Subsets: 2 = Base & Shade.

Room Rating: 3.

Found: Decorative > Lighting > Floor Lamps. Price: §185.
Found: Decorative > Lighting > Table Lamps. Price: §18.

Custom Content used in my screenshots: LACK recolours of the EKTORP Sofa can be found HERE and the 1 tile IKEA - LEKSVIK Coffee Table by me coming soon.

Files have been compressed and checked in game. Colour chart is included in the zip file.

Polygon Counts:
Floor Lamp = 536
