New York based designer Pryor Callaway has sent us photos of the Odalisque bench/coffee table/sculpture that she carved by hand (in her kitchen).

From the designer:

A different type of physical engagement for the viewer: One as sculpture and chaise.

Traditionally, the Odalisque describes a sensual female form, lounging on a period chaise of the time. This contemporary piece unifies the beauty of the feminine curve with the functionality of a lounge, blurring the line between furniture and sculpture.
