The urban street furniture is made and designed in the way that will bring safety and comfort to the masses. You can find urban furniture everywhere in the street, the park, and public utilities to help you spend a useful and amusing time outside your home.
The street furniture is extremely functional and aesthetic. At the bus station, you will find a public shelter to serve as a protective umbrella from the heat of the sun or the sudden downpour, while you are waiting for the bus. The bike shelter will preserve your bike till you come back. The towering columns of lighting come in pleasant designs to spread happiness at your town. You will need the traffic barriers to be safe from the danger of vehicles while you are walking in the street. To keep the town beautiful and clean, you will find decorated litter bins everywhere.
There are various kinds of street furniture that will, directly, affect you if you are living in an urban area, such as the letter boxes, telephone boxes, public toilets, traffic signs, billboard adverts, picnic tables, bicycle racks, tree grilles and guards, fountains, planters of flowers, and sculptures. Nowadays, you can find a modern touch added to the urban furniture such as the bench that is made of metal instead of teak, cedar, or pine wood, and the new ATM machine near the banks to help employees get their salaries.
Because the urban street furniture is used by many people, it should be original, up-to-date, and beautiful to please people’s eyes. Such furniture should be made of high quality materials to endure all weather conditions for many years. The wooden furniture need to carry the stamp of the Forestry Stewardship Council to protect the environment. However, many items of this kind of furniture are made of durable and recyclable materials such as the cast iron, the stainless steel, and the polished hardwood.
