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.
OFB by default is lacking some nice wooden business shelves (I don't like the plastic ones!) so here's a set. It includes a regular sized shelf and a matching tall shelf and pedestal. Unlike the plastic shelves, they look nice enough to use around your home as a place to put toys or knick knacks.

Poly Count
Regular and Tall shelf: 318 polygons
Pedestal: 96 polygons

Included are 9 recolors:

Dark Brown

Light Brown


Varnished Pine


Pine with lavender candy-striped lining

Pearl and Gold


White with pink candy-striped lining

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

OMG Perfection!! Thank you!!!

And can i suggest an idea please? To make one more piece like the one in the middle (stand alone piece) so we can make more combinations with them .For example place a screen tv on top of two short shelves etc

You will find my older and newest creations here

Magnificent!!! These are beautiful and you have made so many, each just as charming and tasteful as the next. There is a style/color that would fit in almost any scheme.
