Fireplace was made by me, but I don't plan to upload it.
The room is just an arrangment, not complete house.
Thanks for your comments

Oh finally! I've been looking for glass balustrades and stairs for a long time now. Official EA stairs don't do it for me. This is so my style. I'd use it for my Sim's house, a museum, or a night club. Just perfect! I bet you have awesome stuff made for your own Thank you! Thank you!

Great work Ulmille ! By the way for the fireplace, you aren't obliged to offer all you create. First enjoy yourself. The room arrangement is very nice too on the pic.

Classy! This is the most awesome looking 'minimalistic' flight of stairs I've ever seen. Gonna use it often, for sure!

Great! Now I have to redo all of my modern homes. You've no idea how long I've waited for someone to create modern stairs with the glass rail/fence. Thank you.

These are Sims 2 right. There's no script to add? No Scriptorium? Or am I out of the loop on something new?

Thanks HugeLunatic. Thought... was hoping, they were modular =)
Me? Sarcastic? Never.

I had the very same problem. I eventually decided to check what stairs I had and don't use anymore as it might have been a conflict. I found the stairs from sims design was my problem. I deleted them and cleared my thumbnails, cache files and my game was fine and I was able to use the stairs. I do so love these stairs, they are truly awesome in game.
