Patina  -  Wear and oxidation that occur to a finish (metal or wood) as it ages. Very sought after effect as patina gives surface a deep, rich luster.
Patination  -  Softening of color and texture of a surface through age, wear, or rubbing. Considered a characteristic of fine quality materials and a hallmark of true antiques.
Pattern  -  A model or form, usually of hand carved wood or metal, used for giving the shape of the interior of a mold. Also refers to a decorative design, as for wallpaper or textile fabrics.
Pillow top mattress  -  Modern mattress construction that includes a thick layer of foam on top of a traditional mattress construction. Often reaches comic proportions reminiscent of the "Princess and the Pea." Standard pillow tops are usually 12"-20" but some may be as thick as 24".
Pillows  -  Fiber, foam or feather filled cushion available in a variety of shapes and styles.Typical pillow sizes are: Standard- 20" x 26" (51 x 66 cm) / King- 20" x 36" (51 x 92 cm) / European Square- 26" x 26" (66 x 66 cm) Decorative Pillows: Boudoir-12" x 16" (30 x 41 cm) / Throw pillow/ Breakfast Square-18" x 18" (46 x 46 cm) / Neckroll Pillow-6" x 13" (15 x 33 cm)
Planks  -  Large, wide and thick pieces of solid wood.
Plantation grown  -  Trees specifically planted and grown for use as lumber in an ecologically sustainable and managed manner.
Platform bed  -  A bed that does not require a box spring. Instead of the box spring, platform beds incorporate a solid surface or slats for the mattress to rest on. Sometimes this surface extends a few inches or more beyond the dimensions of the mattress. Usually low to the floor and modern in style.
Pleat  -  A fold of definite, even width made by doubling cloth or the like upon itself and pressing or stitching it in place. Found on bed skirts and clothing.
Polished brass finish  -  A bright, high gloss finish using lacquer and polishing compounds. Difficult to perfect, polishing true brass is a unique art which requires skill and patience. Impossible to imitate by paint or other less intensive processes.
Poster bed  -  A bed frame with tall posts, often capped with finials, at the corners of the headboard and footboard.
Powder coated finishes  -  Powder coating is a type of dry, hard finish, which is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin." Powder coated finishes do not acquire a patina and tend to be flat and one dimensional in appearance but suitable if not a decorative part.
Prima  -  Top quality or first class.
Proportion  -  Agreeable or harmonious relation of parts within a whole; balance or symmetry.
Proprietary  -  A method, item or process that is used, produced, or marketed under exclusive legal right of the inventor or maker.
Pull-over back  -  Furniture design in which back padding wraps around and over back rather than being squared off and trimmed with welting.
Pull-up leather  -  Full grain leather that is treated with oil or wax so that it develops an aged patina over time. More common on traditional styles, it is also know as oiled or waxed leather.
Quilted  -  An upholstery effect created by using two layers of fabric or leather with a layer of cotton, wool, feathers, or down in between, all stitched firmly together, usually in a decorative crisscross, diamond or other design.
Rail  -  Horizontal bar of wood or metal supporting and tying two ends of a piece of furniture together. For example, on a bed the rails tie the headboard and footboard together and help support the mattress. The horizontal crosspiece at the top of a bed may be referred to as a crest rail.
Rail system  -  Side rails, hardware and center supports necessary to assemble a bed and support the mattress and box springs.
