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 1.31

The new file will overwrite the old and doesn't work in unpatched games.

There was something special about the 50's. Everything seemed very positive and the outlook was good. I also think a lot about 50's design, and therefore works with items to give the sims this.



Here I present a table and a typical kitchen chair. As an added bonus, I also add a typical magazine that existed in many Swedish homes during this time. A time when housewives had time to sit down in the kitchen and reading about movie stars, fashion and healthy recipes.


Costs
The table costs $ 120, chair $ 45 and the paper $ 1. The desk and chair have two color channels, but the newspaper obviously can not be changed.

Note
I recommend very strongly that you use this pattern as sweetichigodream created:
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=355520
It was very common and used on most tables of this type.


Other items that can be seen in the pictures are from the EA Store or my own creations.


Polygon Counts:
Table: 228 vertices and 144 faces
Chair: 920 vertices and 816 faces.
Magazine: 24 faces.

Additional Credits:
As usual, I would like to thank EA for this great game, the developers of the software I use and the authors of all tutorials. In addition, warm thanks to all the helpful people on various forums.

And, of cource, MTS for storing my crap!

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.

Very nice objects, I like the simplicity of them

But I think it's wrong to call the times 50th century though.

???Hmmm....
Don't understand? For us, here in Sweden the 50's are the years between 1950 - 1960. What is it for you?

the 50's Decade not century. Century is 100 years and right now is the 21st Century.

Now as to the table and chair... Thank you. I love simple, plain wood tables and EA doesn't. Do you know if a one tile version of the table is planned?

Well you are right, the smaller "1-tile" was very common. I'll make one for you! In real life you can expand it as you also can with this table. You can see the expandable sections under the top.

I love it! Mum and dad still had furniture like that when I was a kid and I used to hate it. I think mum still reads "Hemmets Veckotidning" Thanks for this wonderful set. I have almost everything you've made in game.
