Swedish furniture brand IKEA has poured cold water on Kanye West's ambitions to design a range of furniture for the company, telling CNBC that there were currently "no plans to collaborate" with the ambitious rapper and fashion designer.
West, who calls himself "creative genius," said in an interview with the BBC's Radio 1 station Monday that he wanted to work with the Scandinavian furniture retailer.
"I have to work with Ikea - make furniture for interior design, for architecture," he told the BBC's popular music channel.
"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," he said during the interview. He also believed that students might be keen for him to design a "a minimalist apartment inside of a college dorm."
