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.

Do you usually decorate rooms with mismatched furniture? Do you like the "it's from a garage sale" look? Then this shabby set is for you. Even if not, maybe you will find one piece that you like.

This set consists of 6 parts: sofa, coffeetable, endtable, chair, table-lamp and a flower. The "Ginger Sofa" has 3 recolorable parts (body, pillows, feet) and costs 380§. The mesh is a bit larger than regular sofas towards the back, so make sure when placing it near a wall, you hold down the 'Alt' key and don't let the wall cut the back off. The coffeetable is a locked chest with 2 recolorable parts and it costs 170§. It is a bit smaller than regular two-tile coffeetables, so if you place small objects at the very edges, they will appear to be floating. The "Anise Endtable" has 3 recolorable parts and costs 120§. Okay I know that chairs are not considered livingroom furniture in the Sims, but here is the "Cinnamon Chair" that costs 200§. The table-lamp is called "Juniper" and costs 60§. And finally the decorative plant, which is a beer bottle with poppies in it, costs 20§. Unfortunately I found it impossible to create dark colors in the glass material, so... this is the darkest green I could do.

If you got through that wall of text then you deserve a cookie.
But I don't have one so here is a screenshot instead.

Let me know if you find any problems with this.
Have fun.

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.

I just have to contribute! You make great stuff Lemon and this time I´m especially thrilled about the chair. It must be Arne Jacobsen´s design as Smulan says, and the chair costs a fortune in real life, so it is very nice to be able to furnish your house with it anyway :D

But thanks a goldmine
