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!!!

Hi Simnuts So nice to see you back!! I myself have been gone for 6 months and have missed you and the other wonderful creators. Congrats on your degree!!

I just love this set!! You did a beautiful job and yes it was very easy to re-color, I love the way it was set up, I usually have to redo a piece several times to get it right, it was easy with yours

Sorry it got so late last night when I posted the re-color, I always post in the original creators thread (I see you have the LINK ) Thank you again for the fantastic creation......and thanks for liking the re-color.

Yes, you can use it in Nightlife.

OK back again - The desk has a slight bleed through (the back legs and through the back corner of the inside top of the desk will show curtains (if placed against a window, with curtains, of course!). The bookshelf had an even less noticeable bleed through, with the back legs being the most noticeable.

The curtains look wonderful - I especially like the top wood - it covers even the tallest windows.

I really enjoy this set and can't wait for more recolors!!!

This will fit perfect in my neighborhood. I also love custom bookshelves because I can hack them to make them non autonomous. Great job!!

They look wonderful, thanks for making those... Pity they don't show in my game, though... :weep:

Can anyone please tell me what to do ? Oh, before anyone asks :

- I downloaded the files, un-zipped them, and put them in my Sims2>Downloads folder.

- I have both extensions (University and Nightlife)

Thanks !

Default Adore set but...
I absolutely adore this set... but being the technowussy of the year and only having sims 2 until deigns to deliver the next two games and etc, etc..I couldn't get the desk to show up in my game...I don't know why, obviously, everything else works beautifully. Of course, I am working (working?!?haaaahhahhahha) on a MacBook pro, and it has an intel chip and if I can stop gibbering long enough to explain NOTHING WORKS except Mac software. anyway....thank you for the gorgeous, exceptional addition to my house. (The desk shows up in the thumbnails but stubbornly refuses to appear when i try to manipulate it.) Kayanna

I just wanted to say that I also have this problem. The other parts work fine, the couches and the curtains, etc. But I cannot place the desk or the paintings, even though they show up in my game.
#70 Old 21st Oct 2006 at 11:32 AM
anyone know where i can get recolors of the paintings in this set?

These are absolutely phenomenal!
Your creations have been a lifesaver for me--
I'm in the middle of making Marie Antoinette's summer retreat on the Versailles grounds...
so of course this is all in the PERFECT time period for me!
Thanks a billion!!
