I know too many city-types who straight-facedly refer to anything placed on a sidewalk as “street furniture”. This includes benches, but also lamp posts, sign posts, and wooden utility posts.
Ottawa’s local power utility has recently redecorated a bit of the urban house by installing a new bit of street furniture. It is obviously new, sturdy stuff, able to take all the wear and tear pedestrians can give it. Should last for decades.
Honestly Mildred, don’t you think it would look a little bit better moved off to the left, so that no one can miss it?
