Furniture giant welcomes rappers interior design aims by saying wed love to see what youd generate but not everyone is convinced
Ikea has addressed Kanye Wests request to allow Kanye to create, proposing the Yeezy: a bottom big enough for West and all his personality friends.
West uncovered his ambition to work with the Swedish flat-pack furniture powerhouse in an interview on BBC Radio 1 on Monday.
I. Have. To. Make. With. Ikea, he told presenter Annie Mac by phone from Los Angeles. With furniture, with interior design, for architecture.
Specifically, he had interest in turning his hand to a minimalist suite inside of a college dormitory, with a Tv built inside of the wall.
He was drawn to Ikea because of his purpose of forming his produces more accessible, describing his mission in life as to do high-end and all this stuff, and deliver it to the people.
He concluded by calling on Ikea to allow Kanye to create: Allow him to make this thing because you know what, I want a couch that he makes, I require a chair that he makes I crave more commodities from Ye.
Ikea Australia responded on Facebook sometime on Tuesday night with the Yeezy: Hej Kanye, marriage love to see what youd generate … we could represent you Far-famed!
The design three couches, bolt together was a including references to Wests controversial Famous video, which pictured West, his wife Kim Kardashian, and other personalities naked and asleep in a monstrous bunk together.

Another mentioned of the collaboration: Would it have a screw loose?
West has now been collaborated with the British fashion designer, Katie Eary, who has created textiles and tableware for Ikea in the past.
He told Annie Mac his destination was to reach content across all trains, and was insulting of those who believed that he should restraint himself to music.
