My mother and MIL have been heavy smokers forever. Before my daughter was even born I told them that if they wanted us to visit that there couldn't be any smoking in the house or we weren't coming. I have a hard time breathing around smoke and I didn't want my baby subjected to it. My MIL was excellent and my own mother cheated ... until the day she saw her 10 month old grand daughter hooked up to a nebulizer during a particulariliy bad winter cold. As far as I know she hasn't sneeked since. I think I would know because my now-8-yr-old is a huge tattler. She had a sleepover a couple of weeks ago and tattled that grandma let her have pop. (mom's rules; no smoking, no pop, no gum, helmets and seatbelts are required)
My MIL has actually quit smoking and if you knew what a heavy smoker she used to be and what a high-strung nervous person she is you would know the enormity of her actions.
IMO it's just rude to smoke in a non-smoker's home. ever.
I don't know how I'd feel about the furniture, it's a kind, motherly gesture. Some moms never stop feeling that they know what is best for us.
