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.


I saw this really neat lounge setting on Tumblr and I fell in love with it. It's essentially just two large pillows, with one propped up on the wall. I think the simplicity of the "chair" is what makes it so cool.



My version for the sims has a funky just thrown together look to give it a more authentic feel. It's really designed to be propped up on the wall, or catercorner in a crevice. The only down side it that the sims will still "prop" their arms up as if there were sidebars. This is unavoidable as of now. =/ (Note: the sim was posed on the chair using pose player and an OMSP)

Bonus Items!

After finishing the lounge chair, I was going to make some decorative throw pillows, too. But then, I had a fantastic idea to make pet beds instead!



EA gave us such limited choices for pet beds, and most of them are too froufrou for my tastes. These beds are simple and much cheaper, and your pet won't know the difference. In fact, I know my RL dog would prefer to sleep on one of my bed pillows than on his own pet mat.

Please note that the lounge chair is BASE GAME. You need PETS for the pet beds only.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

While decorating the apartment for a grungy couch potato sim, I suddenly remembered this mod and had to turn off the game to get it immediately. Thank you!
