So what would 'Kayne West at Ikea' look like?
In between world music tours, designing clothing lines for Adidas and of course those notorious twitter rants, Kanye West has found the time to do a little shopping…at Ikea.
Well, he wasn’t shopping exactly, but visiting with execs at the Swedish giant’s Almhult offices where Ikea first opened in the 1940s.
After Paris fashion week was over, Kanye jumped on a plane and headed north on Tuesday lunchtime.
An IKEA press officer, Jakob Holmström, confirmed Kayne was visiting several Ikea locations, including its design division. He wouldn’t confirm or deny whether the superstar will be collaborating with the furniture company, simply saying, ‘time will tell.’
Oh, the tease!
Kanye confirmed his visit by tweeting to his 20 million followers, posting: “Super inspired by my visit to Ikea today, really amazing company… my mind is racing with the possibilities…”
Kanye and his reality star wife, Kim Kardashian-West, have embarked on a two-year long renovation of their latest LA mansion. However, considering the newly fitted taps are said to be worth $20,000 each, we doubt he was shopping for flat-packed furniture!
Swedish media went crazy for the lunchtime meeting and sparked the idea that the two creative minds could be designing a new interiors’
line – how does Kanye West at IKEA sound to you?
So what’s on the cards?
Maybe a bespoke wardrobe to house some of his latest Adidas pieces, a mirror, mirror on the wall to let you know you’re the greatest of them all (not that Kanye needs any help in the self-confidence department) or even a designer cot for new baby Saint West (in matt black, naturally)?
Stay tuned, folks..
