This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Well - There was a small outpouring of sentiment when I did Hudson's Bay Point Blanket Bedding (Here) - so I thought I'd add to the collection.

These are a recolour of Yggdrasil's "Fluffy Sofa Plain With Throw", which can be found here.

There are three civilized colours: Sage, Red and Navy.

For those of us who associate our Hudson's Bay blankets with our Grandparents' cottages and Muskoka Dinner Jackets, there are also three "vintage" versions. And by "vintage" I mean "hideous". Except one had the audacity to come out kind of cute.

Enjoy,

-K.

I love these! I had downloded the beds before; we too had these blankets growing up in Maine. Although my Grandmother had a propensity toward splashy florals as opposed to the plaids.

Default Love it!
Wonderfully done! <clap, clap, clap> Love the bedding, too!
I think everyone's Grandmother had a Hudson Bay Blanket...LOL!
Now all we need is the Hudson Bay curtains!

Infamy, I finally got around to testing this sofa out in my game tonight. It looks fabulous. So fabulous in fact, that I tried to pose my sims on it for a family portrait! Which is when I discovered that my sims can't actually sit on it. My sims can play on it, but that's all. The middle cushion is not being recognised and my sims actually walk through that part. Am I the only one with this problem?

I think you are the only one with the problem. Mine are sitting on it just fine.

Perhaps just a game-bug that has attacked your sofa? Try deleting it and buying a new one.

Please let me know if you have any luck.

Thanks infamy. Deleting it and buying a new one didn't work, but it is fixed now. I deleted some other sofa meshes including the other "fluffy sofas" by Yggdrasil (the ones with all the pillows) and now they can sit on it just fine. Yay!!

In fact, I love this Bay stuff of yours so much that I made a couple of teddy bears to match. (I own a couple just like 'em. :D) They're here in case you're interested.
