A simple and timeless type of chair that I like very much. Originally made for TS3 it is now available for TS4 as well.
12 colour options, some of which use textures from existing Maxis objects so they match exactly. Available in Dining Chairs for 80§. See the screenshots for how it looks in game, also in comparison with other chairs — it does appear a little fragile next to some of them (which are far too clunky for my taste anyway) but in relation to the sims it has the right proportions I think. Note that the white “Sooner or Ladder” chair in the foreground of the size comparison pic is smaller than the out-of-box one due to this mod.
This does not have an actual lower-resoulution mesh unfortunately, since I couldn’t get .obj import to work (I would have needed to slighly edit the existing low-res one), but since it is pretty low poly to begin with, I don’t consider this a major issue.
High Poly: 419V/370F + 32/26
Low Poly: 419V/370F + 32/26
Sun Shadow: 145V/224F
This is slightly more than the Mega Dining Chair (between 379V/228F and 348V/192F for the object mesh) but much less than the Embrace Chair (between 1252V/796F and 370V/192F).
