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.
24.3.09: Added a collection file.

(the objects on the tray were placed with SilentLucidity's OMSPs)

A summerly furniture set for your sims!
Included are a sofa, a loveseat, two vases, a tray, a carafe and drinking glass.

I also made matching recolors of my "Bibliothek" surfaces. The meshes for these are not included in this set! (Just the recolors) You need at least the sideboard from here for those to work! As it's a repository object, the color option will show for the other surfaces in this set, too.

Some objects from this set are repository objects:
The smaller vase gets its texture from the bigger vase,
the drinking glass gets its texture from the carafe and
the sofa gets its texture from the loveseat.

All of those objects have two recolorable subsets (except the drinking glass)

The decorative objects are placeable on OFB-shelves and on decorative slots (except for the tray).

Before anyone asks why there is a suspicous green glow-in-the-dark recolor of the carafe's content... I just think everything is better if it's green, suspicious and/or glow-in-the-dark. Especially drinks.

Polygon Counts:
sofa: 2386 faces
loveseat: 1926 faces
big flowers: 368 faces
small flowers: 274 faces
chair: 632 faces
carafe: 310 faces
drinking glass:135 faces
tray: 342 faces

Jonesy3110: Do you have problems with downloading the file or problems with the files in your game?
If you have problems downloading, there's nothing I can do about it, I'm sorry. It works just fine for me. Perhaps the site is just busy? I know it happens sometimes, you'll just have to try later again.

Everyone: Thanks for your comments!

Wonderful set. I downloaded the "Bibliothek" set, too. Nice to have additional colors. Thank you, Hek!
