Jo Simmons added this to Styling: How to Understand and Experiment With Scale and Proportion15 September 2014

Make scale work for youScale, in most cases, involves the size of objects as compared to our own human scale. The scale of any given room is usually created along established lines. Standardised heights exist for worktops, chairs have been scaled to fit our bodies, and stools are made to slot neatly under breakfast bars. As a result, most of the pieces and objects we add to our homes are pre-designed to look just right, fit well together and suit us. Nevertheless, it’s important to make sure furniture is scaled to meet your needs. A standard sofa in the living room of a big family, for instance, will look wrong and offer inadequate seating, so a larger-than-usual piece may be more appropriate. However, to make a piece like this work, you will need to use it to inform your other choices – a scaled up sofa will need a scaled up coffee table for example.
