Updated: 21st May 2023 at 7:12 PM - Updated barstool mesh
A set of dining chairs and matching barstools inspired by two popular designs of bentwood "bistrot" chairs. They are named after the famous furniture designers and manufacturers Michael Thonet and Emile Baumann.

They come with a bunch of recolors:
- 15 natural wood textures in 12 of iCad's wood colors plus black, white and Pooklet's incendiary
- 9 colored wood textures. I started picking colors I liked from various palettes and tweaked them to make my own, except for the clue blue and reverend green from the Cluedo palette that remained unchanged
- For the Thonet chair and barstool only: 5 recolors of the frame in shasta's Cluedo metal textures, and 5 caned seat recolors.

Each barstool pulls the textures from its matching chair, so you need to have the chair in your game for the corresponding barstool to be displayed properly.
All objects were assigned a unique GUID from my block.

I really enjoyed meshing these, even though getting the material definitions right made me pull my hair once again :D

Update - 21/05/2023: I fixed the smoothing on the Baumann barstool mesh and updated the archive. If you redownload, you can let it override the old version! It should now have nice sharp edges on the legs like the matching chair
