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.
I was looking through the requests and found the most wonderful photo of a Futon bed in *"This Post", so I just could not resist making it for the Sims.

Polygon count = 1568, vertices = 1029
Price = 600 §, Comfort = 7, Energy = 8, Room = 5.
Uses all Maxis and custom bedding.
Base mesh is the black stain, white stain is the recolour.

The table from my Platform Storage Bed matches the finish and can be found in, "This Post".

Please let me know if you have any problem using it without University.

Free to re-colour as you want, however if you post on a pay site, this mesh MUST remain a free download, or post a link to a free download.
Anything made by me is File-Share-Friendly and MUST remain that way.

Enjoy, Kathy

***Added info June 9 --
Matching dresser can now be found HERE

UPDATE 8/21/05

Changed the comfort, sleep and relax values on the bed to match their posted values.

(UPDATE 2/22/06)

Thank you, glad you like it. The wall is an original Maxis from the TS1 game, I extracted a few that I really liked and converted them to work in TS2.

If you want it, I can upload and add to the first post.

Hi CTN,

I love your platform bed sets - I have one at home just like it. I really like this bed too, very Feng Shui! Will you be doing the other two recolors like the platform bed, because I think both styles are going to be my most favorite and most used now. I am so glad to see both black and white as I am constantly in a state of frustration when trying to decorate. I use black and white and Asian quite often as my anchors and a Colonial style bed just doesn't cut it.

Thank you so very much,

HeartDeco
