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 is the equipment on streets and roads mostly for the safety of people and their information. The term is most used in the UK, Canada and Australia.

It includes benches, bollards, post boxes, phone boxes, street lighting, traffic lights, traffic signs, bus stops, grit bins, tram stops, taxi stands, public lavatories, fountains and memorials, and waste receptacles.

An important consideration in the design of street furniture is how it affects road safety.
