Do your tables have to match?
Absolutely not! However, I do recommend that they feel balanced. These tables are completely different, but they are pretty much the same size. I actually really like the two different tables. It gives the room a collected look rather than looking like they got everything at the same store the same day.
Tip: If your tables are of noticeably different heights, avoid using matching lamps which call attention to the different heights and make them feel lopsided. You can use wall sconces mounted at the same height to minimize any off-balance feel. Or use two different lamps: a shorter one for your tall table and a taller one for your shorter table.
