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.

I saw a desk similar to this on a furniture site a while back. My sim really wanted one for his new house. It started out as a normal two-tile desk but, due to some clipping problems and taking into account the comments made on my last 3-tile desk, it just seemed natural that a three-tile desk would be more useful and better received.

When it comes to desks, I personally like lots of cubbyholes, shelves, hidden compartments, drawers, pencil slots, ink wells... any storage nook and cranny you can think of, I want it in my desk. That just shows my age, say some - the new style is bare, transparent, clean. I agree it looks nicer in some aesthetically pleasing ways, but what if I need to scribble out a mesh idea, take some measurements, make some notes? Drawers are the answer - I can't give up my pencil, paper, ruler, highlighter, etc., but I can keep them neatly tucked away.

So this is my attempt at a more modern, clean-looking desk. That I added drawers to in a panic.
There are 4 slots: one in the center of each tile on the desktop, and one extra deco slot on the lower drawer that can be used for a small plant or candle or whatever decoration /clutter you want. Please enjoy.
