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.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
You can download all 30 recolors in one .rar OR download 1-9, 10-18 or 19-30 in separate .rars. The 3 smaller downloads were split up alphabetically and if you don't download all 3, you'll won't be missing 1 of any of the color sets. (That's why one of them has a few more files in it...to make sure sets stayed together!) A swatch is included in all downloads.

What You Get:
30 recolors of the Ikea Ektorp Sofa. There are 8 sets of coordinating recolors- solid, patterned and half-patterned (see screenshots!); 3 sets with a patterned and half-patterned recolor that match the Ikea red, black and blue recolors that come with the Ikea Stuff Pack; 3 random textures in grey, blue and green. The last 3 have the same pattern on them, they're just in different colors.

Screenshots of every recolor are pictured. Files are named properly and there is a texture swatch included in the download for easy-peasy picking-n-choosing in case you don't want all the recolors.

What You Need:
Since these recolor the sofa ONLY, you'll want to get Huge Lunatic's CEP Fix @ Sims2Artists if you don't have it already. With her fix, the loveseat and chair will pick up the sofa recolors.

Ikea is required for these recolors to work for you! Sofa and loveseat are in Comfort>Sofas and Loveseats for 660 and 630 Simoleons; Chair is in Comfort>Living Chairs for 460 Simoleons.

NOTE: If the 4 screenshots above should happen to disappear from TinyPic (it happens!), those recolors are still shown in the attached screenshots!

Additional Credits:
SimPE, PhotoShop CS2, MilkShape (for previewing the textures!), Huge Lunatic for the CEP fix that saves valuable space, EA for the pretty meshes and the Google for the various free images that I've edited to make these recolors.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
