An architect who spent a whopping $2600 on a designer coffee table was horrified when it turned up sporting what looked like a giant penis.
Brazilian architect Ana Julieta Garcia had purchased the table for an interior design project she was working on for a client in Spain.
The 32-year-old paid $2619 for the handmade piece.
But at the time of paying, she had not seen the specific design she would get, as the tables are made from volcanic lava and are each individual.
Ms Garcia, who also works as a DJ, was astonished when the delivery arrived with the likeness of a penis covering the tabletop.
“It’s a handmade table made from volcanic lava, which is enamelled by hand. You can’t know the final design until it comes out of the oven,” she said.
“That’s the beautiful part of the story, you never know how your product will turn out.
“I saw the example – but it really went wrong in the oven.”
“All the dark pigments clumped together in the middle. Normally, they’re separated,” she added.
“Usually, the final image looks like it is multidimensional. But my order turned out really – interesting – I’d say.”
She joked: “Help! You work your whole life and now your reference is a huge blue d*ck.
“When you put ‘Ana Julieta’ into Google, only this will appear. Nothing about an architect or a DJ.”
She added: “The company sent me the product advising that it hadn’t turned out like they’d hoped.
“It’s just that the table has a long production time. I left it with my client, and the new tabletop is already under production.
“When I handed it over, I said, ‘If you want to keep it, fine. If not, I understand.’”
