When talking about proportions can begin with known proven design standards like golden mean or rule. Those proportion do change when studying different periods and styles of furniture. Proportion ratio do change depending on piece of furniture too; end tables, entertainment centers, dining tables, and chairs for example.
Other design elements and principles of design cannot be overlooked if want to move your furniture into works of art.

Elements are the build blocks of design: color, line, shape or form, space, and texture.
Principles of design, which often overlap: Balance, proportion, rhythm, emphasis, and unity.

Of course, none of this is important if furniture fails function and aesthetics buyers want. Alternatively, if there is total lack of craftsmanship forget everything said here.

Love the piece shown by OP!
