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.
Hello everybody
I've rounded up my best decor objects (and a few other things ). No expansions needed.

Many of these items use base game textures. Some have a few recolors included with the mesh file.
Only separate recolors are named.

Update: Geometric Star Sculpture couldn't be placed on tables, it's fixed now.

*Hanging Rug (bonus item) pulls texture & recolors from Big Rug 3x4 by Nengi65. You can get the mesh HERE along with 96 recolors by iCad.

*Each tray has one placement slot, which is accessible when the tray is placed on the floor.

Here we go:

Buy Mode/Decorative/Plants:

Fruit branches in a vase - 120 S
Japanese maple branches in a vase - 120 S
Potted Taro Plant (master) - 200 S
I've also included
Unpotted Taro Plant - enlarged mesh (slave)
it costs 72 S, you'll find it in

..aaand bonus items :

Hanging Rug - 800 S
Just slave mesh. It requires Big Rug 3x4 by Nengi65 .
Can be found in Buy Mode/Decorative/Wall category.
It was cloned from a sculpture, so you can place it in slots to adjust the height for two-story spaces etc.

Large Marble Slab Coffee Table - 800 S
Buy Mode/Surfaces/Coffee Tables
Wooden parts pull texture & recolors from "Club Counter"
It's cloned from Bayon Coffee Table made by Moune999 and has 13 placement slots.


Notice:
I've generated random GUIDs for these items.

As always, remember to check if new objects you put in your folders show up in the game.
There are 28 of these here, plus two bonus items, so... better to use a check-list I guess

The planter, bookstack & trays were cloned from a planter by Honeywell (based on SilentLucidity's OMSP).

Many thanks, PF! Though I can hear my DL folder screaming "Noooooo!" already. And your Moroccan lamp is much better than Maxis'es, very nice.

I particularly love the plants and the lanterns, but the other decorative items also look pretty cute and useful for more clutter.
