IKEA Turns Down Offer to Work With Kanye West

"Although we are really flattered by Kanye West's high interest in IKEA and the speculation around a joint venture, we have no plans to collaborate at this point in time."

Back in March, Kanye West had a meeting with renowned Swedish furniture company, and from that meeting, he expressed a desire to design for IKEA during a recent interview with BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac:

"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.." Kanye said.

Well today, IKEA issued a statement with CNBC and looks like they're giving Kanye the curve job:

"At IKEA we are constantly curious about different people, companies, artists and events around the world. To have these connections and inspiring meetings is an important way for us to find new ways to create a better everyday life for the many people. Although we are really flattered by Kanye West's high interest in IKEA and the speculation around a joint venture, we have no plans to collaborate at this point in time."

In case you missed Kanye's interview with Annie Mac where this was all discussed, you can still listen to that here.
