struggling with proportions and sizes of coffee table and 2 end tables

2 years ago

I am currently choosing the furniture for my lounge and am struggling with what size/shape coffee table and end tables i need and was hoping someone would be able to help.

We have ordered a large, 4 seated Chesterfield from John Lewis in smoke (a grey/taupe colour): The measurements are H77 x W229 x D101cm. I really like the whole marble/gold trend but i am struggling to find end tables tall enough (due to the sofa height being a rather large 77cm) or coffee tables long enough due to the width size of the sofa. I read that the end tables should be no more than 10cm beneath the sofa (don't know how strictly this should be adhered to..) but finding end tables which are 67cm or higher is proving tricky. Most i like seem to be around 55cm so i worry these would look dwarfed.

Also, do my end tables and coffee table need to match so if i go marble/gold on one should the other also be marble/gold or would this be overkill?

I don't know if this effects anything but the other two chairs we will have (these were actually suggested by Carolina on a different forum question i had so thank you to her: as well as two taupe and gold footstools to be under a console table for extra seating when needed: I haven't bought the console table yet either. We really are starting from scratch!

So if someone could kindly help with what end tables and coffee table to go for, i would be super grateful x
