Apparently, the producers wanted to suggest something about Wesley and the Lexington being different and I'd dare to say that a bigger chair suggests bigger authority.
Or it suggests that their on a different bridge? Since they were cutting back and forth they wanted something cheap to differentiate the two?
Possible, but unlikely, IMHO. We saw most of the Lexington's bridge scenes on the Enterprise's bridge viewscreen, so I'd say there was sufficient differentiation not to confuse the two.

Vice versa, it then would have made more sense to equip the Exeter with the high chair, so that audiences would have understood that our protagonists didn't watch a transmission from the Enterprise but the Exeter's log of its chief medical officer.
