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.
Update: Though it has been brought to our attention that three of these lamps had indeed been done before, the DUNO lamp had not. These are also base game compatible and recolourable, too.

Michelle found these unfinished lights in the IKEA Home Stuff Pack, we took a look around and couldn't find where anyone had finished them and we thought...why not give it a go for MTS? After all the retexturing, remapping, resizing, etc. - we finally have a nice group of IKEA lamps created just for you - the "Orgel" table lamp, the "Orgel Vreten" floor lamp, the "Duno" floor lamp and finally the "Lyra" ceiling light. The first three have a translucent, handmade paper shade with a natural steel base and "Lyra" has a highly polished metal shade.

These lamps are recolourable and base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required. We hope you enjoy using these in your game!
