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.

"Rugs that match bedding" has to be about the #1 suggestion I've received since I first made any bedding-match objects. Supplied here are a 2x2 round rug and 2x2 square rug, each in two differently mapped versions. Some beddings will map much more attractively to one or more of the different versions then to the others, other beddings will map equally well (or equally poorly!) to all. Some patterns will even look near-identical no matter which version of each shape they're mapped to.

Rugs use the in-game bedding textures and will match all beddings associated with the Maxis beds.

Polygon Counts:
Round Rugs: 192
Square Rugs: 32

Additional Credits:
Maxis, Milkshape, 3DS Max, SimPE And big thanks to Echo and Windkeeper for creating the original rug .package files that these are based on - and then saying people could do with them whatever they wanted!

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

Awesome idea, I can't tell you how long it takes me to go thru my 100's of rugs (an thats no lie) to match in a bedroom.

I'm hoping this means it will match all bedding or just the maxis patterns? Anyway I'm gonna try them out. Thanks a bunch

I've been waiting for this for a really long time... I am so glad someone finally made it! Thanks.

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

These are so so beautiful. They are in almost every house in every neighborhood in my game. I'm a bedding collector, so this has made my life easier. I use a lot of these in other rooms where I don't have carpets to match the decor. This was much needed! Thank you for sharing.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

Girl! This is freakin' awesome! ALL my bedding recolors are picked up by the rugs!
It's *crazy-as-hell*! (doing my imitation of the Mad TV dude)
