To Match or Not To Match

If the outcome of my photo search is any indication, I have the answer to my own question.  I've always wondered about the rule on matching bedside tables (and lamps).  Do they need to match or does having two different colors, shapes, materials add character to a room?  While the bedsides of our bedroom now don't match at all, I'm kind of wishing they did and feeling like a change is in store.  What's your preference?  Is there a rule?

p.s. There were WAY more pictures available with matching bedside tables so maybe that's our answer.
