Leone High Back Dining Chair

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.

The Leone High Back Dining Chair is part of the Leone collection. It features a tall backrest that extends significantly higher than the seat. This design feature provides substantial support to the upper back and shoulders, making it a comfortable choice for extended dining periods. High back dining chairs are often associated with a more formal and elegant dining setting, as their stature adds a sense of grandeur and sophistication to the space.

The tall backrest of a high back dining chair not only enhances comfort but also contributes to the overall aesthetic of the dining area. These chairs can serve as statement pieces, drawing the eye upwards and creating a focal point within the room. The elevated backrest can be upholstered or made of wood, and may feature additional design elements such as tufting, button details, or intricate carvings, which add to their visual appeal and style.

From a functional perspective, high back dining chairs are ideal for those who prioritise comfort and support during meals. The extended backrest promotes better posture by encouraging users to sit upright, which can be beneficial during long dinners or gatherings. The design also provides a sense of enclosure and coziness, making the dining experience feel more intimate and comfortable.

We have designed the Leone chair using Tasmanian Messmate wood and upholstered it with high-quality cream leather. Our customers have the option to choose from a wide range of upholstery fabrics and leathers, as well as timber stains from our collection or matched to a sample.
