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.
The Serendipity Living Set is a very simple and traditional living set.

Originally, the pieces in this set were to be part of a larger, more ornate set, but I decided that these particular pieces weren't up to snuff for that set.

So instead, I'm releasing them on their own.


This set comes with 9 sofa/upholstery recolors:

And 4 table recolors:


The accent table and coffee table take their textures from the console table. You MUST install the console table for the coffee and accent table textures!!
The armchair and ottoman take their textures from the settee. You MUST install the settee for the armchair and ottoman textures!!

Terms and Conditions
I am NOT allowing this set to be cloned or hacked.
Please feel free to recolor this set, but do not host the actual mesh files or my original recolor files anywhere else.
Simply link back to this thread and allow users to download the actual set from here.
You may include these pieces in a lot, but NOT if the lot is being uploaded to ANY paysite orthe Exchange.

Polygon Counts:
Console Table - 1432
Coffee Table - 1434
End Table - 1115
Settee - 2665
Armchair - 1964
Ottoman - 350

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

I think there's something wrong with the link for The Serendipity Living Set Mesh.
When I click on it, it tries to download, but it just hangs there. The save window never shows up. The other 2 links below it work fine, and I've had no problems with other downloads on MTS2. Is there somewhere else I can download it? I really like this one and would love to be able to use it. You have done wonderful job on all your stuff. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Oh shoot. You made these? They're great, but now I feel horrible. I remember uploading a lot from the Exchange and then suddenly having these wonderful couches, but I didn't know where they came from or who made them. Unfortunately, my game has crashed since then and I cannot recover the lot to tell you who has stolen your work. These are very beautiful couches, by the way.
