If you were to take all the Ikea furniture out of our homes, the space would be pretty empty. The Swedish megastore has been an important fixture in our lives for as long as we can remember, allowing us to decorate our
apartments like an adult without breaking the budget.
As it turns out, Ikea's appeal extends far beyond us ordinary folks: Over the years, many celebrities have also professed their love for the brand. Some of the biggest names in pop culture have been spotted on Ikea runs. In some cases, they've given shoutouts to the brand in interviews, or are even gunning for a homeware collab.
Ahead is a comprehensive list of famous Ikea enthusiasts — who knows? You might run into one of them on your next hunt for Kallax shelves.

Kanye West Kanye West wants to work with Ikea, and he wants the world to know it. Back in February 2016, the rapper tweeted about his visit to the brand's Swedish HQ and hinted that "my mind is racing with the possibilities…" Ye then went a step further in a subsequent radio interview with the BBC. “I have to work with Ikea – make furniture for interior design, for architecture,” he says. “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.” The brand gamely responded with a sketch of a "Yeezy" bed, comprised of three interconnected beds that curiously resembles the one seen in his music video for "Famous". Fingers crossed these will stop joking around and actually work on a sell-out collection together one day.
