bookshelves, bookcases and wall units made to order in adelaide
For nearly fifty years, we have been designing and making furniture from solid timbers. We began in a farm shed in 1972 when our father, John Pfitzner, decided he had seen enough poorly made, disposable furniture. Our furniture is now available through our Norwood store and our factory showroom in Littlehampton. We’re a true South Australian family business, owned and operated by brothers Andrew and David, and our sister Belinda manages the Norwood store. Together we develop the designs and manage every aspect of the product design and quality.

Plus, since 1999, Pfitzner has been home to Adelaide’s largest range of luxury Norwegian Stressless comfort recliners and sofas, and we’re also the destination for premium outdoor furniture from internationally respected garden furniture brands such as Vincent Shephard, Cotswold, & Roolf.
If you look underneath or inside the top drawer of any piece of Pfitzner Furniture, you’ll find our original logo. This is now our Guarantee of Quality seal. We like to think that decades, and possibly even centuries – from now, your family will still be enjoying our furniture.

And we keep our focus on practicality. If there is a drawer, we make sure it’s big enough to be useful. If it is a dining table for six, it means six people can dine comfortably without banging elbows. Or an entertainment unit, we design and make it to suit your components and media, so you won’t have to store your vinyl records in a milk crate. And if it is one of our beautiful beds, there are no sharp edges to catch your fingers on when you tuck in the sheets.
You can’t beat the old ways of individually ‘bench-making’ furniture. Each of our craftsmen works on just one piece at a time, whether an entertainment unit, a table or an armchair, and gives it their full attention ensuring perfection from start to finish.

Using time proven traditional methods like mortise and tenon joints and dovetail drawers, our eye-catching designs are hand-carved and hand-finished; contrasting timbers are used for borders and inlays. The details are precise, balanced and elegant, setting them apart from those of mass-produced items.
From our family to yours. All Pfitzner hardwood furniture comes with a written 10-year structural guarantee. So you can take comfort and enjoy your beautiful furniture with peace of mind that if there is a problem, we will fix it. And that is why our furniture becomes family heirloom pieces, enjoyed for generations.

Custom Bookshelves, Bookcases & Wall Units Made to Order in Adelaide

Create a breathtaking focal point in your home with the exquisite craftsmanship of Pfitzner Furniture’s bookshelves, bookcases, and built-in wall units. Designed to impress and built to your exact specifications, our bookshelves are the perfect blend of functionality and beauty, providing a sophisticated solution for storing and showcasing items that are not needed daily.


Bookshelves Made in Adelaide

At Pfitzner Furniture, we believe that your furniture should reflect your personal style and meet your specific needs. That’s why we offer bookcases and wall units that can be tailored to your preferred size, timber, and finish. We can craft the perfect piece for you whether you need a compact bookshelf for a cozy nook or a grand wall unit to make a statement in your living room.

We can design and build bookshelves for your study, office or living room. It’s something we have done for many years in timber, and more recently, we have done it with 2-pack paint and timber or even a decorative man-made finish. Designed and built to order, we can either work with your architect’s design or design for you. We approach built-in cabinetry a little differently than a solid timber table. A plethora of materials and finishes are available today for vertical surfaces, and we can assist you in selecting the best option.

Each order is individually sketched and then drawn to scale for the client. This ensures that every detail is considered and the job fits exactly when it comes to installation in the client’s home or business.

Custom Bookshelves & Bookcases: Design Features that Stand Out

Our bookcases and wall units can incorporate a range of design features to suit your aesthetic and functional requirements. Choose from natural hardwood timbers and complement them with glass doors or shelves to create a stunning feature in your home. Optional internal lighting and a selection of handles allow you to achieve a bespoke look that you’ll adore for years to come.

Our skilled team will draft the design for quoting and then once approved we draw to scale and provide final drawings for approval before making your cabinets.

Custom Made to Fit Your Space and Style

Forget about the concerns of having a large piece overwhelming your space. With Pfitzner Furniture, you can specify the exact dimensions of your bookcase or wall unit, ensuring a perfect fit in your designated area. Your choice of timber & painted finish combined with our ability to colour match to ensure that your new piece harmoniously complements your existing furniture, enhancing the overall look of your space. We will check- measure your room where needed so that your piece fits perfectly.

Whether you’re seeking a display unit with both hidden and open compartments or a built-in bookcase that elegantly stores and showcases your treasures, Pfitzner Furniture has you covered. Our designs offer the flexibility to store dining essentials, treasured valuables, or everyday items in a safe and stylish manner, adding undeniable value to your living space.

Maximise your storage and style preferences with options ranging from a robust full-base unit to a lighter, legged design that allows light to pass through, creating an illusion of more space. Visit our large showroom to explore a variety of styles and find the inspiration you need to make your vision come to life.

The Difference Between a Bookshelf and a Bookcase

A bookshelf is an open-shelved book storage cabinet that will usually be fronted. Some contemporary options are sometimes open-ended and without a back.

A bookcase is a cabinet that encases the books behind a door, usually glass, to protect antique books by reducing dust & minimising cleaning. They may have glass shelving for display or timber shelving for books.

With Pfitzner Furniture, you’re not just buying a piece of furniture; you’re investing in a piece of art that will enhance your living space and showcase your items beautifully.
