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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A Bedroom Set for the Modern Vampire

SÖMNIG Vampire Sleeper: Clean. Modern. Timeless. Made of solid wood and outfitted with comfy pillow and bedsheet, this light-tight sleeping chamber need not be hidden away - its sleek lines and beautiful finish will match any decor. No more relegating you to graveyards and basements, my vampire. No more.Open flame torches 100% doused!Nightlife§750Comfort > Beds812
SÖMNIG Daystand: This loyal cube of wood will sit by your vampire bed all day while you rest. It will even hold up a lamp for you, for it shall be dark when you arise. Its three drawers are less cooperative, however, refusing to hold any of your socks.Daystand surface holds up to 5 objects!vampire bed from this set (its textures are used by the daystand - "base" recolours are needed for more options than basic black)§100Surfaces > End Tables360
SÖMNIG Dresser: This heroic dresser has agreed to hold the socks so rudely eschewed by your SÖMNIG Daystand drawers. It will also hold shirts, pants, and underwear, but draws the line at hats.Dresser surface holds up to 5 objects!Open for Business and vampire bed from this set (its textures are used by the dresser - "base" recolours are needed for more options than basic black)§200Misc > Dressers601
SÖMNIG Cube Shelves: Three handsome cubes of wood. Put them on your wall. Put something on top of them. Dare them to complain.Cube shelves hold up to 3 objects! One object per shelf.vampire bed from this set (its textures are used by the shelves - "base" recolours are needed for more options than basic black)§35Surfaces > Misc OR Surfaces > Shelves (get the version* that's right for you)38
SÖMNIG Desk: Sleek and practical. This desk is too modest to boast, but a close look will reveal plenty of leg room, plenty of storage space, and a smooth sturdy surface. What more could you ask of a desk?Desk surface holds up to 4 objects!vampire bed from this set (its textures are used by the desk - "base" recolours are needed for more options than basic black)§125Surfaces > Desks346

Comes in 18 colours, including perfect matches for Ikea MALM and LACK furniture. Collection file also available. Please make sure you get the vampire bed - it's needed for the other furniture to work.


FOR VAMPIRE SAFETY: We strongly suggest using BoilingOil's updated version of Monique's Vamp Sleep Caller mod. This will ensure your vampire goes to bed at sunrise instead of frolicking in the sunlight and burning to a crisp.


*Shelf Options: MISC version is for people who don't have a "shelves" category in their catalogue. SHELF version is for people who do have a "shelves" category in their catalogue. The "shelves" category came with the following expansions: Open for Business, Bon Voyage, Apartment Life


As the one writing this post, fanseelamb would like to thank the entire Coffin Crew for transforming her pipe dream into an actual working vampire bed with doused flames and closing lid.... and then transforming that one object into a full-fledged set! But wait, the best is yet to come! Our official and honorary members have more goodies on the way, so keep your eyes peeled. All items will be linked on the Coffin Crew's profile page as they're uploaded.

Special thanks to leefish.nl for bringing the crew together, and to BoilingOil for generously updating Monique's Vamp Sleep Caller for us.

This...is...awesome!!!! :o Oh wow... I would instantly download this to my game...but I only have a Medieval and an 18th Century 'Hood. x) No Modern 'Hoods. But I have added this to my faves and bookmarked it for easy finding when I do decide to make a Modern 'Hood. This is great! I wonder if there will be more vampire stuff in the future. :3

Yep, not all vampires are tux-and-cape type Nosferati who likes to stalk fair maidens at midnight all dramatically. Some of them are simply Average Joe vampires who just want to work their night job and go home to the vife and the little bloodsucklings. And then shop for coffins vampire beds at IKEA. *nods*

P.S. All you who don't play vampires - human Sims can sleep in vampire beds, too! Granted, they won't get the added perks of thunder claps and rolling fog when they wake up, but they'll sleep just as well in it. Provided that they aren't claustrophobic or anything, of course; then they might have a problem.

Thanks everyone!! We had lots of fun making the set, and it's great to finally see these items finished and uploaded. Thanks again to my fellow team members too!

Kittyke: Yes, the peek option is there. The vampire bed works exactly like the Nightlife coffin. The only differences are the SÖMNIG's appearance and the lack of giant flames in your vampire's bedroom. .

Yay! I don't play vamps as much because I kind of hate the coffins Maxis gave us, but I might have to start letting my sims get bit more often! What a great set! Thank you, Coffin Crew!
