[Update - 14/02/2024] Recently morepopcorn on tumblr released a new bar-height table along with the very nifty mod I wish I had back in 2020, the Bar Stools at Bar Tables mod!

So I made a V2 of these tables to be used with any barstool. You can download the updated files, let them overwrite the old ones and delete the special high dining chairs if you had them, and that's it!
Obviously morepopcorn's mod is required, It is included as kindly allowed by their policy
GUIDS are the same so you cannot have both versions at the same time in your game or it will conflict.


I had been looking for high-top tables for a while without success, so I decided to try making some myself. I know of at least three different lowered dining sets for TS2, so I found it surprising that raised tables had apparently not been done - unless they had but disappeared in internet limbo? To be fair, after starting this project I did find this counter-height table by mustluvcatz, which was not the style I wanted but greatly helped me in the process.

So here is what I came up with:
- 2 counter-height tables matching the Brasserie and Vintage Retro tables from Nightlife
- 3 barstools working as dining chairs, cloned from mustluvcatz' high chairs from her Kim's Table set, and using Maxis meshes from Nightlife and the base game. The animations are not perfect but overall it works fine.
Since the tables and barstools are repositoried to the corresponding Maxis objects, Nightlife is required (except for the quaint barstool from the basegame). Any recolors you already have for these will work
[Edit: 05/01/2021] I forgot to mention that I have HugeLunatic's CEP-extra for the diner table and hipster barstool installed, so it may be required for the textures to display properly. I haven't gotten any complaints so far but in case anyone gets flashing blue objects, you can get it here

Alternatively, to turn any barstool - Maxis or custom - into a functioning dining chair, you can use the very nifty barstool OMSP by Honeywell, part of her island counter desk set . The downside of this is that the placement is a bit fiddly (details in the spoiler):

Many thanks to Honeywell for the barstool OMSP, and mustluvcatz for the barstool-height chairs, they had already done half of the work!
