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.
This is a display shelf in two versions ‒ open and with glass doors ‒ that matches the Maxis Carina Dining Hutch. It is a bit wider than that so the shelves sit flush next to each other; up to six small deco items can be placed inside. I strongly recommend to use this in conjunction with my Clutter Anywhere mod since otherwise the game doesn’t offer a lot of shelvable deco stuff.


Update 2015-03-06: Reuploaded with three small changes:
  • Added some slots to the top
  • Changed the catalogue flags so they will be in Displays instead of Deco > Misc like the hutch
  • Changed the LITE on the open version so that the stuff in it will be lit by lights in the room (the screenshot below shows what this looks like; all of the other ones are of the old version).

I also made a mesh override for the original dining hutch that changes its size to fit these exactly; see the “dining-hutch-override” screenshot. Available over here.




Seven colour variants each (same as the dining hutch), available in Misc Deco Displays for 400§. Technically this references the dining hutch textures; it includes some overrides for that since the shadows underneath the dishes look rather exaggerated to me (and of course they are out of place when the shelves are empty).


Please note:

When you put items in the shelf with glass doors, you won’t be able to grab them anymore since those doors are in the way ‒ to get the objects out, simply move the entire shelf to your household inventory, that will separate the shelf from its content. See the “get-objects-out” screenshots. People with more patience can also try zooming in to just the right spot where the cabinet disappears but the deco is still visible, then one can also grab the deco. Thanks Miss Puff for the tip! =)
