People spend most of their lives indoors. Therefore, it is important that interiors are custom-made for those who will use them. An important factor that shapes people's lives these days is technology, as this and the devices it enables make their lives more comfortable and secure, and help them save time and money. Therefore, we can assume that both homes and furniture become more connected to technology in the future. By reviewing online interior design offerings and observing them at international fairs, we can see that smart technology is expanding into different areas of our lives, so integrating technology and interior design is key to developing innovative and market-friendly products. In our research we found out that consumers have a desire for furniture with integrated smart technology, are aware of how it could make life easier, and are willing to pay more for it. Unfortunately, Slovenian manufacturers do not yet see the market potential that such products bring. Although they are aware of the possibilities that this technology offers, they have not yet made any major moves in this direction.
