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.

here's a little set for those pretty elves out there.
The entire set is greatly inspired by the Lord of the Rings movie, but also by some Art Nouveau pics I had lying around.
It started as an extention to Elrond's Throne, that I made for Midsimmer Night's Dream, but there's also some shapes from the Lothlorien Windows (same project). So all of that should match neatly

Warning: The set is pretty heavy on the polygons. I tried to counter that by using the repository technique and some smaller texture images, but that makes things complicated. You will need both the Dining Table and Elrond's Throne installed for the set to work properly.

All made with Blender, PSP8, UVMapper and SimPE 0.48
Should work in all versions of the game.
I'm really lazy today, so only English catalog entries.
The rar.file contains the following three meshes and one recolor that, again, matches the throne.
Feel free hack, fiddle, make more recolours and upload them. Just give a link to the mesh here.
If you must upload the meshes in a house, please give some credit and avoid the Exchange.

On the the objects.

Elven Dining Table
- price: 342
- poly's: 1890
- This is the repository for the wood part of the set.

Elven Dining Chair
- price: 256
- poly's: 1188
- Borrows wood texture from the Dining table and fabric texture from Elrond's throne.

Elven Lamp
- price: 132
- poly's: 851
- Borrows textures from the Dining table.

Detailed pic:

let me know what you think, and if you have any trouble.
I'll be making some more matching sets, so if you're into this sort of stuff, check back later
Oh, and before you ask: everything in the screenies can be found in Midsimmer Night's Dream. I've given the link three times already. So if you don't have that stuff yet, go get it!

Thank you so much! One of the things I miss the most from TS1 is my LOTR things - and the plants, of course. I particularly love the lamp - not enough hanging lamps imho.

Somehow I missed this, and just found it. It is absolutely beautiful. I really love the ceiling lamps. Thank you so much.

I've got a little problem using the dining chairs.
Nothing appears wrong until I try to put one in a lot. Then the cushion part of the chair flashes blue. This happens with both wood colors. Any ideas?

the cushion borrows its textures from Elrond's throne, another object of mine,
you'll need that object installed for the cushions to work correctly
follow the link to Elrond's Throne or Midsimmer night's dream.
When you're in the new thread, the throne you're looking for in is post six

Discovering these late is better than not. You did such a nice job on the curves - thank you!

Really lovely! As are so many of your objects. Any possibility of a larger elven dining table? I usually like to give my Sims a table for 6 people.
