Why is an iron table solid at room temperature?

An iron table is made out of iron.

Iron melts (turning into a fluid from a solid) at a temperature 1538 degrees Celsius (2800 degrees Fahrenheit).

Because room temperature is far below the melting point, the table will be a solid.

Besides, it wouldn't be a table if it was a liquid.
