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.
This set has been up on my tumblr for a while now. I had every intention of uploading it here too - but forgetful MLC is more forgetful than you know! Then 13pumpkin made some pretty, weathered recolors and nudged my memory. So before I forget again, here it is.

Back story (because there just had to be one!)- Bayoubash requested a TS3 conversion @ GOS. While working on it I became less and less happy with the polycount of the original TS3 meshes. The lowest I could get the chair was still around 19,000 polys which is ridiculous! So I remeshed the chair from scratch, using the original mesh as a guide. The only original part I kept was the seat, because mine would have looked exactly the same. I didn't even bother trying the table as it was pretty high poly too... I just made my own, then made another and another and then 2 more. So- this is a conversion that's not a conversion.

A little warning: This is NOT a low poly set of meshes, the chairs are the highest at over 4000 polys.. So please use with caution if you have a lower end computer!

What You Get:
3 chairs - a dining chair, a living chair and a stool (living chair with no back)
5 tables - a dining table, coffee table, end table and 2 small plant stands (that are actually small end tables)
9 rattan (or wicker, if you prefer) recolors and 11 table top recolors - some of the table top recolors are transparent and some are solid

What You Need To Know:
The meshes are repositoried. The living chair is the master of the dining chair and stool. The dining table is the master of the rest of the tables. You have to have the living chair and dining table in your game for the rest of the meshes to work in your game! The files are named so you’ll always know which is which.
The tables all have slots. The coffee and end tables have 10 - 9 on top, 1 on the little shelf.The plant stands only have 2 - 1 on top, 1 on the little shelf.
The rattan/wicker recolors and the table top recolors are separate recolors so you can delete any you might not want in game with no problems. OR pick-n-choose which recolors to install.
The dining chair has had the CRES edited so your sims will actually grab the top of the chair to pull it out/push it back in. It's not perfect but it -is- better than them grabbing the middle of the back, lol.

Catalog Location & Prices:
Chairs and stool - Seating>Dining Room, Seating>Living Room for 255 Simoleons for the chairs and 150 Simoleons for the stool.
Tables - Dining, Surfaces>Table for 150 Simoleons; End, Surfaces>Endtable for 125 Simoleons; Coffee, Surfaces>Coffeetable for 100 Simoleons; Plant stands, Surfaces>Endtable for 70 and 75 Simoleons.

That's all. Hope you and your sims enjoy!

Polygon Counts:
Dining and Living Chairs - 4155
Stool - 1716
Tables - All - 1602
