Coolest smart furniture to own in 2019

Get ready for smart tables, shower heads and even toilets

With smartphones and virtual voice assistants already in common usage, the next frontier is smart furniture — chairs, tables and even toilets in which certain features can be set off by a smartphone or voice.

While talking shower heads and couches may seem futuristic, the trend is already in full swing. People bought more than 80 million smart home devices in 2016 while  Zion Market Research predicts that the global smart home market will reach $53.45 billion by 2022.

Smart furniture can range from the practical to the ridiculous. To help you learn what home buyers will be looking for, Inman News has curated a list of the best, newest and, in some cases, weirdest smart furniture items you can get in 2019.
