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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a set I'd love to buy in RL but I don't have enough space in my apartment! As there are no such boundries in sim-houses here it is:

Ikea MARKÖR Set - Part I

(Part II to follow in a few weeks)

Feel free to recolor any of these furniture. You can upload the recolors on any free site, but link back to the mesh, please. You can include these in your houses; credit would be nice.

Wow, this is great! Can you accually put stuff inside the cabinets like you have in the pictures? If so then what sort of things? E.g. stuff that can be put on your endtables, fireplaceshelves or coffetables.

too busy at the moment for simming. Sorry, but please don't PM me with requests right now. I will try to fullfill those allready made, but no promises.

Aww, you even included the white storage boxes! Still, something's wrong when my Sims get the posh stuff, and I get stuck with the Billy bookcase, and that really cheap table everyone owns. Very nice work.

I love this set in RL. I've already bought the Bookcase with the glass doors and drawer, the sideboard, the large wall unit, two bedroom end tables. It's my job to assemble all Ikea stuff, so that was a lot of work! Especially the sideboard with NINE drawers to assemble.

But hey that's why the stuff is relatively inexpensive, cause you provide most of the labor!, which is alright with me

But love Ikea in general, and this set in particular, because it's all solid wood, not particulate board. And the dark stain makes it fit nicely in a contemporary setting, without being too modern.

Anyway, great job on those pieces. Now I can try to recreate my own decor

The only thing more I could ask is to put it together, myself. (What? I love putting furniture together. They're like useful jigsaw puzzles. I love IKEA. )
No one in the Denver area needs help putting stuff together, do they?
Lovely set, by the way. :D

OMGosh I LOVE you for this! My ENTIRE house IS IKEA! Thanks so much for sharing! Could you also tell me where you got the accesories to go along with your set? Ex. The coffee cup and the open magazine? *Udate(Open Mag found, just need coffee cup.)
Thanks a bunch!

Can you put a link to the sofa? or is it pay?

only sad thing: I thought to furnish an expensive house for my wealthier students. Unfortunately the "research" function for students doesn't work. boohoo... any chance of fixing this? Otherwise for my regular neighborhood this is really pretty...

Fantastic! I love IKEA to death, and it always pleases me greatly to see "real life" items in my Sim houses!

This set is absolutely wonderful! Thank you!! I love IKEA, too, but in my case it's probably genetic - I'm Swedish.
