Bombé Chest, French-born chests were actually named for their resemblance to those rotund explosives. 

A bombé commode or chest has an outward curving or bulging shape.

Bombé refers to a style of chest or table that has such an outward-bulging in the front and sides, which then curves inward at the base.

While this style of chest was developed in the 17th century, bombe chests are available in antique as well as contemporary styles. So depending on the decor of a home, either style can be chosen.

When determining the style of a bombé chest look at other features besides the curved shape for clues. For instance, a bombé chest with ball feet is more traditional, while a contemporary looking one may have longer legs, and have a brightly painted or more modern finish. (about.com)
