English term or phrase: plum
Our bedrooms are very, very, very comfortable. We’ve specifically designed our environment to incorporate comfort and energy in to the hotel. Our beds are finished with a plum; it’s a purple plum. It’s kind of meant to be an accent piece. But, also, each W Hotel has a unique signature piece and ours is the plum and it’s something you can play with, you can use it as a pillow or toss it like a beach ball.
What is the meaning of "plum" here please?
