Best SL Christmas present ever: Colleen Desmoulins of The Loft has released her first mesh sets, and she sent them over to me to check out. Thank you, Santa!

There are two rooms available -- the Frezza Living Room, and then also a smaller set, the Frezza Christmas Living Room. Let's start with the Christmas room, since it's Christmas and whatnot.

Just gorgeous. And really, take away the Christmas decorations and you still have an amazing room for all year round. But specifically for the holidays, this is just brimming with great deco and adorable The Loft sets always are.

The wood texture on the side table is superb. ♥ And look at these fabrics!

You just wanna touch that blanket, right? LOVE.

As for the entire Frezza Living Room - this is amazing mid-century modern goodness.

I love that color palette. Again, this room is filled with great little accents...Colleen has an amazing knack for adding in the simplest details with the greatest impact. These lamps are beautiful, and the little wooden birds are precious!

Let's talk about the fabrics again. Colleen has always had the best fabrics in all of SL, in my opinion. It's one of the very first things I fell in love with at The Loft, even back in 2007 when we were all young and innocent and sculpts were the breaking news.

I really don't know if I have the words for how much I love the couch fabric. It's so tweedy and delicious. The chairs are beyond gorgeous, and the texture on the orange pillows is so...real. That's the simplest description. So real.

If I can gush about textures just a little bit more...THIS is one of the reasons I think Colleen's textures are tops. Her shading is impeccable. The wood on the table and lamp, below, is gorgeous...but it's so much more awesome because of the light and shadow baked into the texture. And I show you the back of the couch because truly, the shading on the backs of the cushions as they are obscured by the couch frame -- that's art, my friends. This is how you give depth to SL furniture.

Get over to The Loft to check out the Frezza sets. There are a few more pieces to it than I've shown you here, and there are many, many more colors you can choose for the couches, as well. I should also mention that the sets do include a ton of animations and props...but I was way too excited about the textures to actually try sitting on anything. :) So be sure to check that out, too! Enjoy!
