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.
I was looking through the requests and found the most wonderful photo of a Futon bed in *"This Post", so I just could not resist making it for the Sims.

Polygon count = 1568, vertices = 1029
Price = 600 §, Comfort = 7, Energy = 8, Room = 5.
Uses all Maxis and custom bedding.
Base mesh is the black stain, white stain is the recolour.

The table from my Platform Storage Bed matches the finish and can be found in, "This Post".

Please let me know if you have any problem using it without University.

Free to re-colour as you want, however if you post on a pay site, this mesh MUST remain a free download, or post a link to a free download.
Anything made by me is File-Share-Friendly and MUST remain that way.

Enjoy, Kathy

***Added info June 9 --
Matching dresser can now be found HERE

UPDATE 8/21/05

Changed the comfort, sleep and relax values on the bed to match their posted values.


The Mesh is in the, "CTN_FauxFutonSlatBed.zip", package, the other file is the white recolor.

??? If you mean pillows/sheets/cover, yes, all will be available, if you mean recolors of other bed frames, the answer is no. The bed frame has it's own GUID, so only recolors made for it will show up as choices.
