IKEA Offers To Make Kanye West’s Furniture-Designing Dreams A Reality

Swedish furniture company IKEA has responded perfectly to Kanye West‘s recent admission that he’d like to design furniture for the company.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1 last night, West, who already has a deal with Adidas to create a line of Yeezy activewear and stores, said that he’s keen to work with IKEA next.

“I have to work with IKEA, make furniture for interior design, for architecture,” Yeezy said, before suggesting that college kids would have this to say about an IKEA–Kanye collab:

“Yo IKEA, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing because you know what, I want a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he makes — I want more products from Ye.”

Given Yeezy’s admission, and the fact that he shared these legit amazing furniture designs on Twitter earlier in the year…

…it wasn’t too long before IKEA Australia leapt at the chance to offer the rapper a little sumtin’ sumtin’ using their own meme, which if you look closely is clearly a bunch of beds joined together — a sneaky reference to Kanye’s controversial music video for Famous (below):

UPDATE 3/8/2016: A representative for IKEA has official turned down Kanye’s offer of any possible design collaborations.

Kanye’s BBC Radio 1 interview also saw him reveal that he was in a “depressed state” after he performed at the UK’s Glastonbury Festival earlier this year.

While we wait for that inevitable IKEA-Kanye collab to arrive, there’s also a Kanye-Drake collaborative album to get pumped for, after the pair confirmed the record’s existence at Drake’s annual OVO Festival earlier today.
