The company confirmed an online report by Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet that West was in Almhult, the town in southern Sweden where Ikea was founded in the 1940s and where it retains many key operations.

Ikea spokesman Jakob Holmstrom told The Associated Press that West was visiting several Ikea facilities including its design division. He would not comment on whether West and Ikea were planning a joint commercial project, saying "time will tell".

Company founder Ingvar Kamprad opened the first Ikea store in Almhult in the 1950s. As of last year the company had 328 stores in 28 countries.
