The Smart Living Company sells furniture for all of the rooms in the house, including lighting fixtures, wall decor, patio furniture, bathroom furniture and kitchen furniture.

Other miscellaneous merchandise includes action figures, storage solutions, spa and lotion sets, rugs and bird baths. In all, the company claims to offer over a thousand different products for sale.
Customers must register for accounts to purchase items from the Smart Living Company's website, SmartLivingCompany.com. This process is free for customers, but the company also offers accounts that double as business opportunities.

These individuals, or members, are charged a one-time start up fee and an ongoing monthly fee thereafter. There are two levels of membership. The first is Premiere membership, which costs around $20 per month and includes 30 percent off the MSRP of merchandise and one hour per month with a business coach. The other is Enterprise, which costs $40 per month and includes 66 percent off the MSRP of sold merchandise and unlimited access to the company's business coaches.
