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.

Hi everyone!

It’s great to be back! I was away on assignment and getting my degree. I’m back and have my degree and wanted to comeback with something special for everyone. First I would like to thank both IgnorantBliss and Numenor for their help on some of the smaller issues I came across while making this set. Second, I notice that I have a “few” PM’s which I have not answered; I have not forgotten you, I will answer each and everyone!

On to the set (sorry for all the pictures, I didn’t realize there would be so many!) I was inspired to make this after seeing this type of beautiful furniture in Europe. It’s a Louis XVI style library/study with all the accessories. I hope you like it. It works great in my game, but please let me know if you have any trouble with it.

All the pieces are mix and match. I have added a subset to the curtains so the wood colors can also be mixed around to your tastes.

Please feel free to recolor any item you like, with the proper credits please. These items are to stay on this site ONLY. These meshes are for EVERYONE to enjoy and will remain FREE. You can certainly link back to this thread if you have re-colors on your site.

I tried as close as I could to stay within the 800 – 900 poly count per tile on most of the objects. Some are a bit higher, but if they were any lower the integrity of the mode would be jeopardized, that is why I have individual zip files for each object, so you can download what you like. Each zip file contains the mesh and the re-colors. Even with the slightly higher counts, I have not run into any problems with them. Each item also has it’s own GUID, so there should be no conflicts with any other items in your game.

You will notice with the bookcase that your Sim may pull a book out of a bottom shelf that is not there sometimes, or put one back there.

-Bookcase 1,937 faces
-Rococo Chair 2,762
-Rococo Couch 3,092
-Curtains 996
-Desk 1,844
-Library Chair 2,576
-End Table 1,200
-Fireplace Screen 600
-Fireplace Painting 154
-Wall Painting 91
-Square Painting 38
-Desk Chair 2,011
-Side Table 1,552

Thanks, I hope you enjoy!!!

:howdy: Because of my sensitive eyes, I like items to be bright/white so I can see them as I need to have my monitor on low brightness, so most of this set will be ideal :D
I just love the style of the couch, chairs and desk. Thanks so much for sharing and yes, CONGRATS on your degree, clever you

This set is amaizing!!! I fell in love with that style during my visit to France and the palace of Versalies. You did a really great job making an entire set.

Congrats on the degree!!!

I was just wondering where you went last week! My Sims have missed you as much as I have. Life just hasn't been the same without being able to come here to discover your newest treasures (I've been waiting for more furniture since the VERY lovely, yet high poly-count couch and chairs I'd hope you'd remake!!!).

You just don't know how happy I am you're back!!!

First let me say I'm glad you all like the set, thank you for all your GREAT comments!!! It's good to be back again. I was inspired when visiting the Palace of Versailles in France and Schloss Augustusburg in Germany (I wish I could make a staircase like the one in that palace!). I adore Mozart, and enjoy playing his music on the piano and violin.

The bookcase does work. What I guess I was trying to say is that the original mesh I used has a shelf right to the bottom of the floor, and mine does not have a bottom shelf, so sometimes when your Sim gets a book or puts one back, they may use that bottom shelf, and the book either appears or disappears into thin air when they use that shelf, that's all, other than that it works fine.

See you all soon with something else!!! :wave:

Congratulations on your degree, and I am so glad to see you back. As always, your things are amazing and beautiful. So "Old World". I love your sense of style. Thank you also for your generous re-color policy. This is so kind to those of us that are 3D mesh challenged but enjoy creating recolors. Thank you.

OK - I'm back from a quick test. First of all, they look great in the game!!

Couple of small 'issues' with 'bleeding through' on the sidetable, couch and chairs (when you place them in front of a window with curtains). The side table also bled through the wall in a corner. Of course anyone can use the 'moveobjects on' along with the 'boolprop snapobjectstogrid false' to move them - it just takes a little time.

The end table did not seem to have any 'bleed through' issues.

I'm going back to test the rest (I forgot about the bookshelf and I remember putting the desk against the window, but I may have had the walls down, so I need to look for the bleed through there).

I'll be back to report!
