SimArchitect's Lyre Arm Settee (Edited / Updated)

VuokkoSims had made a request over at GoS, (inaccessible at this writing), for some recolours of SimArchitect's Lyre Arm Settee. I decided to give it a go. I ended up having to re-map the mesh to allow for easier recolouring, re-did the cushions, and resized it to allow for the mesh's animations for sitting, lounging etc. Not perfect mind you ... but then neither am I. The only strange thing about the animation is .... the Sim scoots to the right side of the settee to stand up again. Not my fault, I swear!

The newly edited / updated mesh has two subsets like the original except mine combined the frame and seat into one subset and the pillows are the second subset allowing for more recolour choices .... a good thing!
For this upload, I've used CuriousB's colour actions, but since I only own GIMP it's more a bucket fill over various textures. I hope the colours will be close to her colour palette.
A small teaser of some of those recolours. The rest you'll have to download to see for yourself.

Huge Thanks to SimArchitect for creating the original in the first place .... and to CuriousB for that fabulous colour palette.

Thank you so much! I love the textures and how you edited the mesh, I can't wait to see it in game, again, thank you! ♥

I think the end table's textures look better than the lounge chair. They look more vivid in color - brown is brown, and gold is gold. The lounge chair, on the other hand, has a nice fabric texture, but the frame does not seem to give a shred of hint on what type of material it is. It looks like rusty metal or really weird red wood. The mesh is gorgeous, though. Let's just hope that this lounge chair actually works smoothly in-game!

I may try downloading it and recoloring the frame part, reusing and recycling Maxis dark wood textures.
