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 featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Fixed the problem with the sofa table laying on its side. Please re-download the table!! If this is your first time downloading the set, you do not need to download the extra file--this only affects those who have downloaded the set since the server crash in March.

I can't believe I'm actually finished with this set! By sheer dint of will, I am thrilled to be bringing you the newest addition to the Homey Touches collection--the living room set.

This set includes: sofa, loveseat, armchair, end table, coffee table, two and three tile sofa tables, TV cabinet, stereo, single and double width long drapes, single and double width Roman shades, potted ivy, calla lilies, decorative vases, armillary sphere, large basket, two sets of sofa pillows, wall shelf with orchid, area rug, ceiling fan, wall sconce, table and floor lamps, and a privacy screen. (The framed scrolls in the last picture are part of my Homey Touches bedroom set, found here .)

As a special bonus, I'm also including the walls I made for the screen shots. (They're not included in the "Living Room Set-ALL" package. They must be downloaded separately.)

Amythestfenix has made some incredible recolors of the Roman shades in nearly every color under the sun, and one floral design. You can find them here and here . Thanks so much for all your hard work, AF!

Goldaline has made some bright and cheery recolors of the full length curtains and large basket. You can find them here. And check out these! Thanks for the great recolors, Goldaline!

Special features of this set include the animated ceiling fan and additional slots added to the TV cabinet, end table and coffee table. I added three slots to the TV cabinet (bottom shelf, top shelf, and top of cabinet) so you can put the stereo and TV together, like in a true media cabinet. (Makes sense, huh?)

NOTE: some items (such as the sofa pillows) require "moveobjects on" and "boolprop snapobjectstogrid false" cheats to be placed correctly.

I've included a collection file and UV maps for anyone interested in recoloring the set.

NOTE: the ceiling fan animation is done by animation cell textures of the blades, which means they can be easily changed by recoloring them. If you're interested in doing so, JWoods has written a great tutorial on animation cell recolors. Or you can ask me for specifics related to the fan. I don't bite. Promise!

As always, ENJOY!!

I lost all my archives [though not my extracted packages] and had to redownload everything [still working on it, of course; probably never will get *EVERYthing*], and thus no longer have the original archive available, unless and until I manage to recover data from the drives they were on. ::sigh::

This is one of the most beautiful sets I've ever had the good luck to download. Thank you so much for creating these. You made my day

This is absolutely one of my favorite sets and wanted to give a proper thank you. I had this set in game for a while. Sims short on cash can furnish their homes with style and the added bonus is the furniture appreciates over time (a very welcome discovery). Thank you for a set of furniture that truly makes a house or apartment a home.
