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.
I had been looking for high-top tables for a while without success, so I decided to try making some myself. I know of at least three different lowered dining sets for TS2, so I found it surprising that raised tables had apparently not been done - unless they had but disappeared in internet limbo? To be fair, after starting this project I did find this counter-height table by mustluvcatz, which was not the style I wanted but greatly helped me in the process.

So here is what I came up with:
- 2 counter-height tables matching the Brasserie and Vintage Retro tables from Nightlife
- 3 barstools working as dining chairs, cloned from mustluvcatz' high chairs from her Kim's Table set, and using Maxis meshes from Nightlife and the base game. The animations are not perfect but overall it works fine.
Since the tables and barstools are repositoried to the corresponding Maxis objects, Nightlife is required (except for the quaint barstool from the basegame). Any recolors you already have for these will work
[Edit: 05/01/2021] I forgot to mention that I have HugeLunatic's CEP-extra for the diner table and hipster barstool installed, so it may be required for the textures to display properly. I haven't gotten any complaints so far but in case anyone gets flashing blue objects, you can get it here

Alternatively, to turn any barstool - Maxis or custom - into a functioning dining chair, you can use the very nifty barstool OMSP by Honeywell, part of her island counter desk set . The downside of this is that the placement is a bit fiddly (details in the spoiler):

Many thanks to Honeywell for the barstool OMSP, and mustluvcatz for the barstool-height chairs, they had already done half of the work!
