Street furniture can reflect local issues, as here at Lyme Regis, UK. The Ammonite-design streetlamps reflect the town's location on the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site.

Street furniture are objects and pieces of equipment installed on streets and roads for different purposes, including traffic barrier, benches, bollards, post boxes, phone boxes, streetlamps, street lighting, traffic lights, traffic signs, bus stops, grit bins, tram stops, taxi stands, public lavatories, fountains and memorials, and waste receptacles. The term is used mainly in the United Kingdom and Canada. An important consideration in the design of street furniture is how it affects road safety.
