LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- Furniture store chain Ikea has responded to Kanye West who has expressed interest in working with the company.
"I have to work with Ikea -- make furniture for interior design, for architecture," the outspoken rapper said to BBC Radio 1 host Annie Mac Monday during an interview.
"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 declared after detailing how he believes students would be interested in a West-designed "minimalist apartment inside of a college dorm."
Ikea's Australian Facebook page has since responded with a mock-up design of what a West-influenced piece of furniture might look like. "Hej Kanye, we'd love to see what you'd create...we could make you Famous!" they wrote referencing the rapper's controversial single from his latest album, The Life of Pablo.
Back in March, West had visited the Ikea headquarters in Sweden and noted on Twitter at the time, "Super inspired by my visit to Ikea today, really amazing company...my mind is racing with the possibilities."

Other highlights from West's interview on BBC Radio 1 included the 39-year-old admitting that his headlining performance at the 2015 Glastonbury festival left him in a "slightly depressed state" following a musical error and his political ambitions stemming from announcing at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards that he would be running for president in 2020.
"When I talk about the idea of being president, I'm not saying I have any political views," he said. "I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth."
"We are numb, we're numb to 500 kids getting killed in Chicago a year, we're numb to the fact that it was seven police shootings in the beginning of July," he continued. "If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I'm alive I'm going to try to do it."
