Futura Living - Retro-Futuristic Living and Dining Set


Mid-century was an interesting time design-wise as many things were going on. Coming out of art-deco and Bauhaus, we have multiple technology advances that helped shape design of the era outside of the popularity of what is commonly referred to Mid-Century Modern that we enjoy today. With the harnessing of atomic energy and space travel, these influenced aspects of design and gave some out of this world designs. This set is inspired by that period of design, when space age, atomic age, and Mid Century mingled to create an interesting eclectic style that was full of personality.


What you need to know:
  • The divider, fireplace, and pendant textures are linked to the shortest height package file. You must have that size in-game for the others to work
  • The credenza and Console have TV slots
  • The storage box was designed to add some interest to the console and credenza and fits perfectly into the shelves. You can put decor there if you want though
  • Be sure to resize the pillow down one to get additional size, just use MoveObjects and the up/down keys to get to right height
  • The single seat Onslo sofa is 2 tile because of the design
  • the table centrepiece is designed for round tables, although it can be used on regular tables, it will be oversized

  7. Your links to download are down,I'm very much interested in the fireplace. We need more variations on hanging fireplaces. The square stiles have become very dull and are a bit boring in a modern build.

    1. Yeah, they seem to be having issues. I would grab the files from Onedrive in the meantime.

  8. The merged download link isn't working for me. I can't tell if the link is broken or if SimFileShare is down.

    1. i think it is experiencing issues at the moment but due to it being the start of the new year it may need some time to get fixed. So i would advise you to download the items individually for now from Onedrive.

  12. I need to say this: I hate you! You keep releasing CC and I keep downloading everything you upload XD.
    I really like your CC, and I have recommended it to every sims player I know and they like it too. Keep up with the good work!

  13. Hey! I really love all of the design in the "abstract composition" ! Are they from your imagination or from an artist ? :)

    1. There are actually 4 links. The Mirror link is to google drive for the merged file so be sure to try that. Also SFS has been having issues, but a quick solution is to remove the www. from the start of the url which fixes the link. Onedrive has messed up their download limits so i am moving towards Google Drive in hopes that will do better.

  15. Hi fellow Aussie!

    First of all, you're a wildly talented individual (I am a professional interior designer, I would know ;) )

    Second, I'm unsure if you have noted this, but how do you make your gameplay so beautifully bright and lit up in the sims 4?

    Thank you x

    1. Awe, thank you!

      As for lighting, some of what you see is edited; a bit of brightness and contrast increase done with photoshop. I do use environment mods for lighting too, all done by luumia on tumblr. And I use a lot of lights XD
