What is the standard height of a lamp?
Average floor lamps range in height from 60 to 72 inches, or 5 to 6 feet, but there are much taller lamps; think of those that arch over a sofa, almost brushing the ceiling, or a spring pole lamp that goes from floor to ceiling.
What is a good height for an end table?
Here’s the rule: your end table should be within two inches of your sofa’s arm height. If your couch’s arm stands at just 18 inches, then, you’ll want a shorter end table (between 16-20 inches). Accordingly, taller couches require taller end tables.
Do lamps on end tables have to match?
End tables do not need to match, but the proportions should be similar. Again, lamps do not have to match, but they should also have similar proportions and coloring.

How do you measure an end table?
To select the appropriate end table dimensions, measure from the floor to the top of the armrest. A 30-inch tall side table is a common size for most sofas, but taking this step ensures your end table fits your furniture properly.
