Actually I like the new street furniture they are putting in. I think it looks nice and smart, and should be quite tough and last well.
I don't quite understand the point of the info point things that you describe as razor blades, but they look nice!
The bus stops are great, except for one saturday I was in town and a bus clipped the top corner of the the shelter and the glass roof shattered all over a couple of old ladies.
I don't like the old style decorative furniture, and in a city like sheffield with all the new buildings I think it would look out of place.
Also, in all my recent trips to Europe (Amsterdam, Berlin, Bergen, Oslo, Madrid, Cork etc) I seem to recall that they are all putting in a newer style of street furniture, bus stops, benches etc.
