George R.R. Martin speaks on the chair of a thousand surrendered blades:

The HBO throne has become iconic. And well it might. It’S a terrific design, and it has served the show very well…Everyone knows it. I love it. I have all those replicas right here, sitting on my shelves. And yet…it’s still not right. It’s not the Iron Throne I see when I’m working on The Winds of Winter. It’s not the Iron Throne I want my readers to see. The way the throne is described in the books.. HUGE, hulking, black and twisted, with the steep iron stairs in front, the high seat from which the king looks DOWN on everyone in the court…my throne is a hunched beast looming over the throne room, ugly and assymetric…

Martin goes on to explain that the smaller chair from the series is the size it is out of necessity, since a throne of the correct proportions would not fit in the throne room used for filming.
