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.
Sims with a high creative potential need an appropriate place to work and transfer their ideas into reality... The xaad design office set features 6 new stylish furniture meshes to meet those demands.

Updated: The old packages of the desk and the wallhanging originally posted here were incorrect and overwrote Maxis content. All other items are okay.
If you downloaded these two meshes before this update on February 26 2009 please redownload them now and allow to overwrite the old files. Thanks and sorry for your inconvenience!



The design is a bit extraordinary combinig noble shiny wood with matte metal. It expresses airiness and solidity at the same time
The included meshes are:
-a chair with the same metal frame and an organic rounded shape
-a work lamp with an exceptional style featuring shiny metal and green leather inlays
-an end table
-a desk
-a wallhanging collection with nice black and white photos of cultural sites (silver and golden frames are both included)
-a decorative pile of documents for the right 'important decisions' atmosphere


As always I'm glad about all comments and Thanks!

Polygon Counts:
Desk 332
Wallhanging 80
Chair 916
Lamp 768
Endtable 300

This set looks very professional, some of my sims will be happy to run their business in a comfortable and so realistic office ....
Hope to see recolors too. I've no time these days for recoloring anything, but if nobody will make some I'll do (blue, orange, dark red, etc etc), only have to wait weeks or even months ...
By the way, is the watch on the table inlcuded in this set, Jon?
Thank you once more, Kiss and ciao

just to let you know the wall hanging overwrites the simcityatnight painting. It's a great set can you correct this issue? thanks

Oaha, You're absolutely right and it's all my fault . Thanks for reporting.
I'm verry sorry but the old versions of the painting as well as of the desk overwrite Maxis content. The Maxis meshes are still visible in catalogue but not usable.
Please redownload the new packages and let them overwrite the old versions.

Mea Culpa! Excuse my mistake please.

Hi and yes, it's absolutely ok to include my meshes in lots on free sites as MTS! If you are not sure about a creator's policy you can check it on his or her profile and you don't have to ask everytime.
The flower shown on the oictures is not included in this set. It's part of my 'Projekt Kado' which is aldo found on my profile.

You have to open the cheat window by pressing 'Ctrl Shift C' and then enter the code 'boolprop allow45DegreeAngleOfRotation true'.
