Melrose Traditional Table

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.

10 Year Structural Guarantee

For lacquer based finished tables: 2 pack Polyurethane and 2 pack acrylic finish.
Wipe after use with a damp rag in the direction of the grain to remove finger prints etc.

Melrose is a dining table with a traditional design. This traditional dining table features a turned leg and a solid timber top. The Melrose design is based on the traditional Victorian/Classic ranges of furniture. Handcrafted in our Adelaide Hills factory, we deliver them all over Australia.

This traditional dining table is constructed of Tasmanian Messmate timber. Customers can select from a wide range of timber stains from our range – Tasmanian Messmate, Mahogany, Jarrah, Feature Eucalypt, American Oak, Blackwood, Cherry or Walnut, or match a sample.

Our Melrose traditional dining table can be made either with a fixed 32mm top or an extension style 41mm timber top with a traditional leaf that stores beneath the top. An important point to note is that a fixed traditional dining table will have the timber grain running the length of the table, whereas, in an extension one, it will usually run across the width. It all has to do with the expansion and contraction of the solid timbers.

Timber displayed in the picture: Tasmanian Messmate, natural finish.

Standard and custom sizes available. Made to order in Adelaide, and shipped Australia-wide.

Priced from $3,425 – T3E: 1830L with a 600mm traditional leaf, extending to 2430 L x 1070 W x 760 H (mm), in Tasmanian Messmate.

Did you know? We test all our traditional dining tables throughout the design and development of new products. We prototype table frames to make sure they can carry our 10-year warranty.
