IKEA has designed a giant bed for Kanye West


To us, it's always felt that Kanye West has been constrained by music.

Quite simply, it's too small and restrictive a canvas for all the creativity that demands to be unleashed from within him. No - he needs more areas to allow his manifest genius to express itself.

Fortunately, Kanye agrees with us. He previously setting out his plan for total world domination via the Donda Communications Company:

You can see, under the 'Lifestyle' section, lies 'furnishings', and he reiterated his desire to walk into the space left vacant by BHS during a chat with Radio 1's Annie Mac on Monday, telling her: “I. Have. To. Work. With. Ikea. With furniture, with interior design, for architecture.”

He added that he wanted to create, “a minimalist apartment inside of a college dorm, with a TV built inside of the wall”. Crazy stuff indeed.

He previously got overexcited during a trip to Ikea's headquarters in March (it happens to us every time we go to the Croydon branch Kanye, we know where you're coming from):

And on Monday, he added that he felt it was his "mission in life" to do both “high-end and all this stuff, and bring it to the people”. Speaking in a very strange third but also first-person style, he said, “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.”

Thankfully, for the future of home furnishings, it seems Ikea feel the same way, as Ikea Australia has made the first move toward a long-term collaborative future, by posting up the 'Yeezy' on Facebook:

The design is, of course, based on the notorious video for Famous, which saw Kanye and Kim Kardashion sharing a giant bed with a host of naked lookalikes of other celebrities, including his very good friend Taylor Swift.

One less-than-impressed fan, however, suggested this could be the store's next move:

To be honest, we're fans of the Yeezy - after all, in the world of beds, bigger is always better isn't it? But Kanye's primary concern is probably the soft furnishings placed upon it:
