Breakfront Chest

A breakfront chest is a cabinet that is divided into three vertical sections with the center segment projecting out beyond the rest. This protrusion appears to "break the front" of the chest, hence the name breakfront chest. In modern-day design, it is typically used as a china cabinet or bookcase.
