The king of confidence and normcore Kanye West stated he wants to design for our favorite furniture superhouse IKEA, and we got just a tad bit too excited. Kanye is already Famous for his fashion design abilities, so we are sure he could succeed at adapting to IKEA's style. After all, he is the force that made Kim Kardashian start dressing like a minimalist.

The artist's relationship with IKEA began when he visited the headquarters in Sweden earlier this year. Whether he merely took a tour or actually spoke about a collaboration with the company is a mystery, but safe to say, Kanye isn't one to hold back his ideas.

Then just yesterday, in an interview with BBC 1, Kanye clarified his desire to work with the brand. He said, "I have to work with IKEA! With furniture, with interior design, with architecture... a minimalist apartment inside a college dorm."

The rapper then called IKEA out in the third person: "Yo Ikea. Allow Kanye to create. Allow him to make this thing. Because I want a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he makes, I want more products from Ye. There is nobody on the planet, there is nobody living going hard like this, yo!"

IKEA Australia's response? This incredible Facebook post.

We hope you live up to your word IKEA.
