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.
To explain the deco no more - AlfredAskew made some decorative Altman Fresnel lights @ GOS. I thought some neat lights could be made out of them, asked (ok, subtly hinted) for permission..and here's the result.

There are 5 meshes. 2 ceiling lights: 1 straight down and 1 angled, a wall light a table lamp and a floor lamp. Playing around with making the whole mess repository convinced me that doing it in 2 sets would be best. So the 2 ceiling lights and the wall light are 1 set- with the straight down light being the master and the table and floor lamp are the other set, with the table lamp being the master. The ceiling and wall lights can be placed seamlessly.

Making the table lamp the master of the floor lamp may sound like a strange idea. I had a good reason for that: The results are a whole lot prettier. Also there are studio lamps on MTS already (by Numenor, psyckotic and Targa), so if you don't want another studio floor lamp? You can keep just the table lamp. My thanks to Numenor for his extracted lights. I borrowed the legs from one of them and edited them for my version.

Recolors are welcome - I edited 19 of AlfredAskew's and those are included with the meshes in each set, along with 3 recolors of the stand/non-light parts. There's only one little thing I need to say about recolors- if you do, don't get rid of the little red square on the light texture..that's for the cord. I didn't have anywhere else to put it, lol.

Polygon Counts:
Ceiling Lights - 630
Wall Light - 632
Table and Floor Lamp - 1394

Additional Credits:
MilkShape, PhotoShop CS2, SimPE, UVMapper Pro and AlfredAskew, of course, along with Pooklet..who's colors she used for her textures.
