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.
Hi, this is my first attempt at making furniture. I know there are many wonderful meshes of chairs and tables already but I just couldn't resist the temptation of trying to make some of my own.
The set has dining chairs, a dining table and a sideboard. Here are the details:
Oval Sideboard - 1412 polys. Can be found under Surfaces> Coffee Tables.
Your sims will be able to put the newspaper on the siedboard or use the telephone, but the animations are somewhat awkward.
The sideboard has 2 recolourable parts: the wood and the glass doors
Oval Glass Dining Table - 1506 polys. It has 2 recolourable parts: the wood and the glass.
Dining Chair - 572 polys. It also has 2 recolourable parts: the frame and the upholstery.

As always, feel free to recolour and please do not upload to pay sites.
P.S. SimPE says the meshes should show for those of you who only have the
base game. However, I have all expansions and I haven't tested them (the meshes) in a base game only environment.
I have replaced the chair mesh and the recolours. Probably the chair caused the game to crash because I used the old version of Simpe.
I used another chair as a base for the clone. 'Hope this one works fine. Please, tell me if everything is OK.
Redownload the chair mesh and the recolours. When prompted to replace the existing ones in your Donwloads folder (if you still keep them there), choose Yes.
Important Update 22.02.2007
Please replace the old Oval Sideboard mesh with the new one. The older file did not have original Guids and replaced one of Maxis coffee tables. The new file contains all the recolours, so you should delete not only the old mesh but the older recolours as well. KinwatsaZ, thank you for telling me about that problem.

Wow! These are BEAUTIFUL! Quite an exceptional first attempt at making furniture. I would love to see more in this style, especially a bedroom and study.

These are really well done! I love dining sets that go together so well. I also think the sideboard is really neat and can't wait to use it. Thank you so much for sharing them!

I want to add a thank you also for the fact that they are not only beautiful but you managed to make them low poly as well. So many times things this nice (especially with rounded edges) are so High poly they are almost unusable. Thank you again.

(These would be amazing in a home with the Amarante set from Holy Simoly)
