Customers and manufacturers have never been as connected as in the present moment. When the Industry 4.0 introduced the possibility of having customizable products, the customer's needs evolved from the standardized requests to fully customized requests. Within the unavoidable evolution of Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) in the households and the unquestionable demand for customization, an untapped niche exists in the customized smartification of furniture. Due to the absence of specialized support for the creation of unique smart furniture, a framework to guide in the development of embedded hardware on furniture design is proposed. The framework features stages that guide each process of product development during furniture smartification. It will be tested with two real life use cases that are expected to be developed with all the requirements fulfilled. The framework proposed in the paper turns the smartification of furniture simpler and more accessible to everyone. Additionally, it also features the possibility of using it in the smartification of other products that are not furniture.
