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.
While playing my game last night, Ida (the sim in the pic) let me know she wasn't happy with the choice of rugs she had. Not wanting to watch her stomp and wave at me, I set out to remedy that. Today she went shopping for a new rug. She must be pleased- she sat right down to write about it in her diary.

These rugs are recolors of rugs by Nengi65 and Huge Lunatic. They will recolor all 5 rugs sizes- 3x1, 2x3,3x4,4x5 and 5x6- be warned though that they don't look that good on the 3x1 size.
Also, there may be some imperfections in the colors and shapes of these rugs. They're all created from pictures of real rugs and I didn't change the colors or shapes- just wrangled them around to create these recolors.

Meshes are included in case you don't have them. Huge Lunatic's are additions to Nengi's and are slaved to Nengi's 3x4 master mesh.

Thanks to Nengi and Huge Lunatic for the meshes!

I'm not sure if different EPs added different catagories in game- but according to SimPE: Nengi's rugs should be in Decorative>Miscellaneous and HugeLunatic's slaves should be in Decorative>Rugs. (That's where they are in my game. ) Also, since there is one MASTER file and the rest are slaves, if you don't have the master none of them will show up for you.

Yes, thank you I found them. I was looking under decorative -> rugs not decorative -> miscellaneous.

I think I've left two comments in all the years I've been viewing this site, but have left three today since viewing your pages! These rugs remind me of my childhood home. We always had large, nearly room size braided rugs. Dad would take them up for the summer and that's when we would hear the dog's toenails clacking back and forth late at night as he made his rounds :-) Thanks for the memory!
