valance: drapery treatment that runs across the top of a window.

value, color: the relative lightness or darkness of a color.

varnish: a hard and lustrous transparent coating.

vegetable tanning: the process of making leather using tannins obtained from bark, wood, or other plants and trees.

veneer: a surface overlay of a thin sheet of wood. The underlying material may be solid wood, or a composite wood product.

Victorian: Historically from 1837 to 1901. The style is named for England's Queen Victoria. Derivative of rococo and Louis XV style, it is distinguished by exaggerated curves (like the camelback sofa), ornate carvings and dark finishes.

visco-elastic memory foam: Originally developed by NASA to compensate for the G forces astronauts endure during takeoff, visco-elastic foam is a very popular choice for mattresses. Memory foam conforms to your body in response to body heat but returns to its original shape as you move. These temperature and pressure sensitive properties make it the favorite of many.

vitrine: display cabinet with glass doors.
