Mainit Hellman of [Baustein] sent me his latest set, the Journey Reading Corner. Mainit made this set for his location on the Journey sim, owned by his very close friend, Tuli Asturias. This is a nice basic set, perfect for a cozy corner and to curl up with a good book.
The chair is texture change (click for the menu) – 4 colors for the chair, and 12 colors for the pillow. I mixed it up a little for you in my pictures. For my personal taste, I’d like the chair to be a bit more…like, floppy cushy comfy, if that makes sense. 🙂 It’s well textured though, and has very classic lines, which I appreciate. The little bookshelf really grabs my eyes — the baked shading on it is very well done. It gives an almost tangible depth to it (as much as SL allows).
You can see in the 2nd picture, above, that Mainit included a magic wand display, a nod to the magical feel of Tuli’s Journey sim. 🙂 I like the simple touch of adding the open book on top of the shelf, too — gives it a little bit of a lived-in feeling.
The chair comes with a nice selection of animations, including (of course) some reading animations, and Mainit provides the books for those, as well. He also has a few of my Pulling Strings animations tucked in there, so 10 points for him. \o/
The Journey Reading Corner is only available at the Journey location [SLurl]. Enjoy!
