This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Edited: To add AL and MALM Plain Cushion recolours as requested by Cloud_Strife.

As requested by *_Drew~.

The IKEA KLIPPAN Sofa and KLIPPAN Two Seat Sofa in AL Wood, LACK and MALM matching colours. HugeLunatic made a KLIPPAN Sofa (a big improvement, there is something so wrong about that heart shaped cushion on the Sofa, in my opinion) and Living Chair slaved to the KLIPPAN Two Seater Sofa, you can find them in Comment #6 HERE

These are not base game compatible, IKEA Home Stuff Pack is required!

KLIPPAN Two seat Sofa:
Found: Buy Mode > Seating > Sofas & Loveseats. Price: §365.

KLIPPAN Sofa:
Found: Buy Mode > Seating > Sofas & Loveseats. Price: §730.

These are my favourite couches in the game, thank you for making these recolors! Thank you.
Also, I know that you have made recolors on the IKEA Expedit TV, and I was wondering if you perhaps could make recolors of the boxes in the shelf in Lack colors? I love that TV, and it would be so nice to have everything match with the shelf

@Cloud_Strife - I have added the plain AL and MALM cushion recolours for you hun, unfortunately it is not feasible to make an invisible cushion, due to the cushion shadow on the sofa.

I'm not asking to make an invisible pillow, I'm just wondering where the pillows with the animal, lips and misc. pictures on them came from? I just wanted AL and MALM solid-colored pillows, not for the ones with the pictures on the pillows, that's all, unless those annoying pillows-with-graphics came with AL, then I would just request an alternate set of pillow recolors with ONLY the solid MALM colors, and no pillows with graphics/pictures on them, if you don't mind, please!

Please take your time with my two requests, the Etruscan Concrete floor tiles in MALM and LACK recolors, and this alternate set of pillows for the Klippan Sofas that ONLY have solid MALM recolors and NO graphics(wolf, fox, lips, abstract, dog, etc.)!


My Sincerest Thanks,

@Cloud_Strife - I added the solid colour pillows back in July 2016 for you, if you didn't want the pictured pillows, in your game, you could have opened the plain pillow packages in SimPE, export the textures, then open the KLIPAN-TwoSeatSofa packages and replace the patterned pillow texture images with the plain ones, it is very easy to do.

I have added them for you here so you can just replace the AL and MALM recolours you have now.
