Kanye West visits IKEA's headquarters in Sweden

Kanye West has visited IKEA's headquarters in Sweden and now his mind is "racing with possibilities".

The rapper-and-fashion designer has been to several Ikea facilities in lmhult, the town in southern Sweden where Ikea was founded in the 1940s by Ingvar Kamprad and where the company's first store was open in 1958, and where it has numerous key operations.

Among the premises Kanye visited were the furniture giant's design division and the hip hop mogul was very excited with what he saw and the discussions that took place.

Posting on his Twitter account, he revealed: "Up late designing in Sweden ... Super inspired by my visit to Ikea today , really amazing company ... my mind is racing with the possibilities... (sic)"

IKEA spokesman Jakob Holmstrom has confirmed Kanye visited several facilities but would not confirm whether discussions had taken place about him designing for the company, only saying "time will tell".

If a collaboration does happen the 'Ultralight Beam' rapper - who is married to Kim Kardashian West - would be the first celebrity to work with IKEA, which currently has 328 stores in 28 countries.

Away from music, Kanye has his Yeezy fashion line with Adidas, which is most famous for its Yeezy Boost sneakers.

The 38-year-old star recently claimed he is $53 million in debt from his foray into fashion and from funding his own music.
