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.

Hello everyone,

Due to new rules, we are only allowed to upload one type of compressed file, either rar or zip, not both, so I choose the zip, figured that would cause the least amount of begging .

Continuing the Prairie Style theme with a Sitting Room Set.

New original meshes included are, --
For sitting -- sofa, loveseat, lounger, and easy chair.
For putting things on, or under -- sofa table, coffee table, and end/side table.
For looking -- fern plant on a stand, long vertical painting, and 6 decorative pieces for table tops, mantels and floors as well as a special version of the six that are made to sit on the under table shelf.

There are also 5 paintings, recolors of Maxis meshes, and a round rug that is a recolor of Echo's 3x4 rectangle rug (base needed, can be found HERE ), yes, this is on the rectangle rug mesh, I altered the alpha of the recolor to make it appear round. If you have Echo's 2x3 rectangle rug mesh, you will find this recolor in that size also.

Specs for new meshes --

Sofa, 3 tile -- poly - 2012, vert - 3166
Loveseat, 2 tile -- poly - 1450, vert - 2291
Lounger, 3 tile -- poly - 1320, vert - 2178
Easy Chair, 1 tile -- poly - 964, vert - 1563

Sofa Table, 2 tile -- poly - 432, vert - 866
Coffee Table, 2 tile -- poly - 470, vert - 954
End Table, 1 tile -- poly - 502, vert - 1018
Long Vertical Painting, 1 tile -- poly - 82, vert - 138
Fern Stand, 1 tile -- poly -- 980, vert -- 1343

6 Deco pieces range in size from 360 polys to 88.

Curtains and lamp can be found in the Prairie Style Dining post.

My rules for my meshes --
CTNutmegger of RSSS for TS2 (http://homepage.myeastern.com/~kamaba/html/index.htm)

Free to re-colour as you want, however if you post on a pay site, my meshes are to remain a free download, or post a link to a free download. You may post the meshes on your site, but "do not rename" and/or claim them as your own.
Anything made by me is File-Share-Friendly and MUST remain that way.

Please let me know if you have any problem with any of the objects not working in games without the expansion and I'll see if it can be adjusted to work for you.

**UPDATE 7/23**
Changed the Loveseat file to replace a missing texture, this should cure the problem with the funky texture choice.

Because of the problem with the loveseat I've zipped the files for sofa, chair, lounger and loveseat separately.

Enjoy, Kathy

These are beautiful!!! I gave a couple of the loungers to my sims right away and they loved 'em. There was one little glitch though. They sat down and got up out of the lounger sort of instantly instead of using the normal animation. It's not a big deal at all, maybe it was even intentional?

That loud thud you heard was me hitting the ground hard. What an absolutely gorgeous addition to your Prairie set!! Thank you so much - it seems inadequate, but, it's all I have.

These are absolutely gorgeous pieces! I, too, have the extra loveseat frame as pictured by luslipz but I have no doubt you'll fix that,

The wood matches your Prairie dining table, so I will be happy to grovel and ask that you do recolors for this set when you have time that match the tables and chair recolors you have already done for the dining items.

I'm so glad you decided to add to the Prairie theme! Thank you!

Default thank you
thank you soooo much for this and your dining room set. The mission and craftsman styles are my favorite. I am trying to learn how to make my own, and these are a great inspiration for me to get my behind in gear.
