Bombe Chest

The bombe chest gets its name from its rounded edges and shape. The function of this chest is similar to a bureau or armoire, but its structure differs with the sides and front bulging outward and then curving inward at the base. This swollen-looking chest is popular within the French Baroque style, having originated during Louis XV's reign in the 18th century. The chest often has two to three drawers and features ornamental hardware. Design by Alia Meyer
