In classical paintings, the Odalisque is a female figure laying (usually naked) on a chaise lounge. The Pryor Callaway Odalisque combines that concept with extreme minimalism to create a sculptural furniture piece that is unique and modern.

Carved by hand, the Pryor Callaway Odalisque is a contemporary piece that acts as a sculpture as well as a bench or coffee table. According to the New York-based designer Callaway, "the contemporary piece unifies the beauty of the feminine curve with the functionality of a lounge, blurring the line between furniture and sculpture."
