Yo! I'm bored and procrastinating, so I'm going to post my thought for the day.
Well, maybe more like thought(s). A lot of thoughts. Lotsa contemplating and designing. This oughta be fun.
So I've been doing a lot of imaginary furniture/house/architecture design for winged people (in my head, that is), more specifically for my Inorians. Kansasjeeper has designed a wonderful stool/chair for wingeds, so that problem is basically solved (although, I personally would add some sort of wing-rests). But what about couches? Like, would they have a long, running gap between the upper body rest and the seating/cushions itself for you to fold your wings by your side and they'd extend out the back? I think Squidlifecrisis did something like that.
Also, bathtubs. I mean, to have 'anatomically correct' and potentially working wings, they've gotta be pretty big. So when you're taking a bath, the ideal tub wouldn't exactly be our wee little tubs here in the modern-day Midgardian world. I was thinking maybe outdoor baths! A small building, more like. Nothing too fancy, just a big pool of warm water with some supplies sitting along the sides for your use. So you can swim around with freedom of wings, no sitting and cramping up your tail-feathers, etc. I think showers would be non-existent in a world with winged people. Unless it's designed like a huge waterfall or something, in a room... I feel like a bath would be less complicated and more convenient, anyhow, so in my world, showers are nonexistent. Plus, like I said before: SWIMMING!
So, I guess (for myself, at least), I've solved the mystery of bathtubs for bird-folk. But what about *whispers* toilets? I feel like they wouldn't have lids, because the bird-people with tail-feathers would have some trouble avoiding peeing and pooping on their beautiful tails. The lid would force them down into the potty area.
They'd probably be shaped and designed like our modern-day toilets (if the bird-people world is more contemporary and Midgardian, which mine certainly is not), but if the winged-people-world is more rustic and medieval and fantasy-based, maybe they'd be like the clay or stone pots people used back in the day. Chamber-pots, bruh. Ya squat over it and WHOOP, done. Although, urinating may be harder for females... (sorry, TMI, but it's gotta be said. FOR THE SAKE OF WORLD-CREATION.) It'd have to be cleaned out regularly, and I feel like members of a family would have to take turns. "It's your turn to scrape out the chamber pot, Kevin." "Oh c'mon, just kill me instead." A heavy burden, indeed.
TABLES. Tables may not be a huge issue, come to think of it. I come from a relatively enormous family, so if we were winged peeps and we all sat at a table together, either that table would be huge/a mile long, or we'd each have to eat at different tables. The wings would just make it so crowded and cramped, pressing against each other and what not (unless the chairs have wing rests, but even then..). But hey, I bet that there could be a specifically LARGE room for dining, like a dining hall, and the whole family could have their own personal space restored whilst enjoying a nice meal. So yeah! Restaurants, however, may be a problem... maybe I'll do a rant focused on those some other day. (A day soon to come, no doubt.)
...well to be honest, I believe that that might be all!!! Not as long as I thought it would be... but yeah, here's my take on furniture for winged peeps and such!! Hope you liked it!
|I like to draw, and I love winged people so if I do upload anytime soon you'll be seeing crappy drawings of peeps with wings. I hope to improve my skills, sooo YAY.|
