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.
5 more sofa tables, all base game. This time I've used the Simple Structure and Chabudai coffee tables and the Manor House Paree, Tablablanca and Luxiary Ample King dining tables. (Don't worry, your sims won't try to dine on them.) As a bonus, I've added 6 Maxis-Match recolors of the Tablablanca table top. I love that table and needed some wood table tops. Since I couldn't find any MM recolors, I made them. All tables have 3 slots on the top and are slaved to the Maxis originals.

As before, no cheats are needed to place these correctly. They sit at the very back of the footprint, will not stop a sim from walking around a sofa and, if you place a phone on the top of one, sims can still use the phone. I recategorized these in Surfaces>Misc and all are 100 Simoleons. An updated collection file is included for those who want it. (Replace the old collection file with this new one.)

Set 1 is HERE

Polygon Counts:
Chabudai 1210
Luxiary 1098
Simple Structure 632
Manor House 1588
Tablablanca 854

Additional Credits:
MilkShape, SimPE, PhotoShop CS2 and, again, EAxis for the original meshes.

These are SO great! Thanks a lot for being such an awesome creator. I use the other tables in almost every house I build and now these will be as useful!

Ive had to make a folder with your name on it in my downloads folder, enough said!
Not actually evil.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Maxis add-ons make Maxis stuff much more attractive. Rooms look like they have actual sets in them, and not just some eclectic odds and ends.

To "steal" from coeg: Thank you, thank you, thank you for the comments and compliments (awesome and my very own folder in someone's downloads!) And you're all very welcome. Warm, fuzzy feelings ftw! (I'm in a rare mood today, lol.)

I love you. I simply can't get enough of stuff what matches and is slaved to Maxis stuff. 'Cuz they tend to make nice stuff...but their textures suck and, of course, nothing matches and pieces that should exist do not exist and...yeah.

And hey! Cold meds can be fun!....although the prescription kind is generally better. YAAAAAAY codeine!

Oh yes, matching stuff is never too much! I like Maxis stuff but of course the only way to use them is downloading the improved versions and textures you creators make!
Thank you for these wonderful sofa table additions!

I really love these, i dont normally make requests, but do you think you can do an Alpha edit / Recolor of the Tablanca... Removing those little swirly things, and then recolor the metalic part so its like, stainless steel, or something of a silver/grey color would do. it would make for an amazing modern style table.
oh my gosh with a glass table top...*drool*
er..sorry...getting out of hand now lmao

iCad- heehee!!

SimCeleste and Simkitty181- thanks and you're welcome, too. Simkitty181- I don't plan on doing an alpha edit of that table. There are tables like you're talking about available.. I know I've seen tables like that before. (Also, I did a glass/metal table and chair set- the table could probably be recolored the way you want.)

Oh my god, this is genius. I'd tried putting regular tables there but they always looked too bulky and I had to use snapobjectstogrid false.
