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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Description and info:

These pretty little shelves evolved from another project I am working on at the moment. They feature a shiny metal frame and either glass or wooden shelves, and come in either a slim or a standard size. A matching pedestal is included with each main variation.

By design they are non-tiling, meaning that if you place them side by side the edges do not meet up and overlap the way squared business shelves do. They are more decorative and a little higher poly than normal, and intended to be used in the home or as accent pieces, though if you really want to use them in a business then nothing is stopping you.

The slim version is my favorite--it's a little smaller than usual, so has a great "out of the way" feel to it, and is ideal for medium sized objects such as toys, hence why I called it a toyshelf in game. The standard size is as bulky as usual, and in my opinion not as pretty for it, but does hold all sizes of objects well and is more "general purpose."

The metal frames come in three colors, gold, black, and white, and the wooden shelves have these recolors: pine, varnished pine, white, and candy striped.

Poly Count:

Polys: 1618
