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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
As requested by Goldenbtrfly.

I was recolouring the chair as requested by Goldenbtrfly in Shasta's YETI colours, Fairy Floss, Lemon Drop and LACK colours when it occurred to me that the chair didn't really go with anything in game. Into Milkshape I went and come up with a 1x1 dining table, a 2x1 dining table and a bench seat. All are slaved to the original PatioPlastics Dining Chair so any other recolours you have of the chair should show up on these add-on pieces as well.

UPDATE - November 18, 2017: gabilei123 has made a CEP-Extra for this set, to make the legs recolourable, you can find it HERE.

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

PatioPlastics Bench Seat:
Found: Buy Mode > Comfort > Sofas & Loveseats. Price: 120.
Cloned From: Piece of Quiet Park Bench. Slaved To: PatioPlastics Dining Chair.

PatioPlastics Dining Table 1x1:
Found: Buy Mode > Surfaces > Dining Tables. Price: 90.
Cloned From: PINEGULTCHER Outdoor Minitable. Slaved To: PatioPlastics Dining Chair.

PatioPlastics Dining Table 2x1:
Found: Buy Mode > Surfaces > Dining Tables. Price: 110.
Cloned From: The Talking Table. Slaved To: PatioPlastics Dining Chair.
