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.
Updated for Pets and patch

The files are updated for Pets and the patch and tested in game.
The new files will overwrite the old files.

I work with several objects from the 50's, whose design I like very much.
Here I present now four objects, but several sets in later.
This set includes an easy chairs, a coffee table, a locker and my grandmother's floor lamp.



Armchairs
are not so much to say about. It has three color channels, the third is the small buttons that hold it.
This easy chairs can also be used for official waiting room, etc.

The table
was made usually of teak. There are many slots, so it is possible to deploy a variety of things and make it homey.
You can also put things on the shelf below the top. The table has two color channels. You can color the legs separately, but it was probably not so common.

Storage cabinet
was also very typical of the times. It has 21 slots on the top.
The cabinet has three color channels, frames, doors and drawer fronts and handles and legs.

Grandma's floor lamp. This, I have worked a lot on to get the right illumination. Usually though, I think that EA's Lamps
are far too strong. This has only 1 / 6 of EA's intensity and I think it is good.
The lamp has three color channels.

Cost:
Armchairs costing $ 125
The table cost $ 125
Storage cabinet costs $ 145
Floor lamp costs $ 225

Everything you can see on the pictures are EA's or my own creations. Some of these will eventually be uploaded in the future.


Polygon Counts:
Armchairs has 831 vertices and 704 faces
The table has 566 vertices and 422 faces
Storage cabinet has 997 vertices and 684 faces
Grandma's floor lamp has 1560 vertices and 1812 faces

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Nice work, would love to have the TV cabinet. And I know someone else mentioned this, but this would the the 50s decade... NOT the 50th Century (we're only in the 21st right now).

Really calling it Mid-Century would work as well. I grew up with some pieces like this in my family's homes. Very good work and a must have for my retro homes. Thank you.
