This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

I love me some sectional sofas, and this is my favorite Maxis one. It's the "Plumper Thumper" from Apartment Life.

I messed around with the texture quite a bit, removing horizontal indentations that really bugged me because some of them were crooked, and creating a new texture for it, which was supposed to be a crocodile-embossed leather but it didn't really work out as such. I still liked what it looked like, though. So, I kept it and dumped 18 Crayola colors on it, mostly brights but a few pastels and neutrals, too. This is the result.

Here's a bigger pic that shows the texture a bit better:

And here are the colors:

The files are, as usual, compressed and clearly named. They require Apartment Life. And...there you go.

Also, if you like this sort of thing, I uploaded another sofa retexture, of the "Coming Up Roses" sofa/loveseat and the recliner that goes with it to my Simblr. You can find it here:

This is perfect, thank you - I tend to stuck this sofa in each and every house I build, and I have been longing for new colors for a very long time!

More color options were definitely needed for this. Thank you!

I absolutely hate those folds in the original texture, thank you for getting rid of them. I love this project you have going on, you have inspired me to delete some custom meshes - and make a big list of all the Maxis stuff I want to retexture... Thanks

I also didn't use the plumper thumper because of its texture: yours is usable, thank you.

Oh yeah - I always like to get more use of EAxis stuff. I agree about the folds and like your retexture. Thanks.

Love me some texture fixes! Thanks much for this. This is another workhorse piece in my sim houses.

The original "Plumper Thumper" were u-g-l-y! I've been using "Mr. Sectional with Arms" and its recolors for years. Now I have a new option. The new textures and colors for Plumper Thumper are great! Thank you!

This is my favorite sofa because you can make a matching chair and love seat. The recolors look great. Thanks.
