Hello!
I was miffed that EA/Maxis decided not to make all of the EKTORP seating in the same colours so I recoloured the EKTORP armchair and loveseat in the sofa colours that were missing.
The colours I've done are white, beige and striped.



Now you can have fully matching livingrooms that are properly co-ordinated.

Known Issue: If you don't or can't play your game with maximum texture detail then the striped recolour may look blocky and blurry. I've tried my best to eliminate the problem but SimPE seems to compress the image just a bit too much on reimport even when using the 'Build DXT' option. This doesn't effect the plain recolours though.

I hope you enjoy them in game. IKEA stuff is required for these to show.

Please don't upload elsewhere unless you include them with an uploaded lot to a FREE site. Then just link back here please.

Thanks so much for doing this I really like something by EAxis for a change but of course it doesn't match.

Am I assuming correctly that we will need the IKEA sp for this?

Thank you, I was miffed that I could not have a matching living room. Now I am miffed that EA did not include the ottoman, so I could make my living room. Thanks for these, I really enjoy the comfy coushyness of my loveseat. I can share that with my sims now.

Very nice, its the small touches like this that make the game just that more appealing. Pity Maxis doesn't seem to get it.
Thanks Smiley

Thank you! I thought it was so odd that they didn't make the armchair and the loveseat in the same colours as the sofas..

Thank you! Most of my Sims prefer to own matching (or closely coordinated) furniture. Your recolors are just what they want (smile).
