Oh, wow! This is cool! How did you do that? Is it sort of the same as Wes_H's shower kit?

I haven't seen what Wes has done but theres not much to it. I just changed the format and alpha of the chair.

Nemi - here's Wes_H's shower kit:

He was able to make it invisible except for the shower head and the knobs.

Regardless, I love the floating chair!!!

Neither the chair or the desk shows up in my game. I have all the expansion packs upto and including Pets. Am I missing something?

I finally found the hoverchair and the hoverdesk - they are fantastic! Please do more. For those of you who are unable to find the two items, for the hoverchair look under Buy Mode - Comfort - Dining Chairs - Stark Inspiration Chair. When you're there, you will find it hidden in one of the recolors (look for the asterisk). For the hoverdesk look under Buy Mode - Surfaces - Desks - Chiclettina Execudrone Desk (again look for the asterisk). These downloads use Maxis mesh instead of custom meshes.
