Been around the World

The inspiration for this scene was Chez Moi‘s World Map Décor.  Not only do we have lots of different products from around the world in this picture, the product creators also live in various far-flung places in real life – Second Life® is what draws us all together.

This is quite a mixture of products but they all match up, not least because of the modify and texture change options which certainly make furniture of this kind a lot more versatile.

*~*~*

Three close-ups of the products follow.  The first is Newchurch‘s Fiona Kitchen.  This is a modular low prim kitchen which, with a bit of judicious fiddling, will fit most kitchen spaces. All pieces are originally white but are easily tinted, so in this scene half of them are that cheerful deep orange.  Don’t look aghast – I’ve seen glaringly scarlet red kitchen units in real life, not to mention egg yolk yellow and lime green.  You can tint the prims, remove the bump/normal maps, and change the shine/specular maps as you see fit.

Several of the pieces have animations inside of them. The sink has several washing poses, the stove/oven has cooking poses, and the counter top has several food preparation poses.

 

The second close-up shows also Known as‘s Alonzo Dining set.  Those place mat settings are so useful, there’s no messing about finding separate plates, cutlery and glasses – they are all there in one quick rez.  Nice dark wood for the table and chairs, too.  I really like the shape of this set.  The chairs have great animations in them and aka has certainly thought carefully about what you need for a dining chair.  There’s poses for coffee/waiting/bored, then a Masculine menu with 6 poses, a Feminine menu with 5 poses, and a good Dining menu with suitable poses (soup/main meal/dessert/wine) for ladies and gents.

The food is from Dust Bunny’s Sweetheart Lunch  gacha.  I was very fortunate when I played on this machine – I got everything without too many repeats except for two prizes which I found on Marketplace as I didn’t want to push my luck.  I know when the Gacha Gods are smiling and when they are raising their eyebrows!

*~*~*

This is Chez Moi‘s Kensington living room set in close-up, please excuse the puppies! They are so tired out they didn’t even notice us scoffing lunch. The couch has room for 1-3 people, and it comes with 116 animations in the PG version and 180 animations in the Adult version:
~ 72 single poses (12 male animations and 12 female animations in each spot)
~ 44 animations for couples in love (22 x 2)
~ 64 intimate poses in the Adult version (32x 2)
There’s a texture change options for the throw – cream, biscuit, gold, chocolate, red, green, blue, dark grey, light grey – a great example of versatile furniture.
