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.

I have another mesh set for you today.

I've been working on this for a few weeks now and I am very pleased with how it has come out. I do want to make clear that none of these meshes are actually Ikea items they were inspired by a few pictures in the 2012 Ikea catalog I received a few weeks ago. I want to thank Jim for the idea to make the placemat! I recolored the chairs and tables using the IKEA LACK colors.

All meshes should be Base Game compatible. UVMaps are included in the download for anyone who would like to use them. There is also a collection file to help you find all the items more easily.

This set contains:
Chair - (seating - dining) for 50§
Unfolded Table/Folded Table - (surfaces - dining tables) for 30§
Magazines - (deco - misc) for 10§
Flowers In Vase - (deco - misc) for 6§
Metal Vase with Candle - (deco - misc) for 5§
Plates Stacked - (deco - misc) for 4§
Cutlery - (deco - misc) for 2§
Plate x2 - (deco - misc) for 2§
Glass - (deco - misc) for 1§
Placemat - (deco - misc) for 1§
OMSP x4 (surfaces - misc) for 0§

Polygon Counts:
I tried to keep the poly counts as low as possible this time around.

Chair - 544
Cutlery - 396
Flowers In Vase - 840
Glass - 192
Magazines - 84
Metal Vase With Candle - 308
Placemat - 12
Plates 1&2 - 144
Stacked Plates - 288
Tables (folded & unfolded) - 408
OMSPs (all) - 12
