Could Kanye West be doing a collaboration with Ikea?


Furniture giant Ikea teased “time will tell” if it is working on a project with rapper Kanye West.

Ikea confirmed he visited its offices after an online report by Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet said West was in Almhult, the town in southern Sweden where Ikea was founded in the 1940s and where it retains many key operations.

Ikea spokesman Jakob Holmstrom said West was visiting several Ikea facilities, including its design division.

He would not comment on whether West and Ikea are planning a joint commercial project, saying only: “Time will tell.”

Company founder Ingvar Kamprad opened the first Ikea store in Almhult in the 1950s.

As of last year, the company had 328 stores in 28 countries, which means plenty of potential West-style interior design fans.
