If you're seeking a way to hide a large display HDTV, think "bigger is better". Here's an example of hiding a large television using a floor-to-ceiling architectural feature, seamlessly covering up the distraction of the television with a large art piece, changing the focal point from the screen to books...
This Rio de Janeiro apartment featured on Casa de Valentina uses a false wall on tracks to hide the television from dinner party guests.
Sliding the art-adorned wall into place to cover the television, it turns into an architectural feature. The wall-to-wall shelves visually transform into bookend bookcases that look as though they were built to fit the space on either side of the (fake) focal wall. Only a close-up side glance reveals what lies behind to give the secret away.
The rest of this apartment is equally full of sliding surprises. Designed by Hedgehog Architecture, this convertible floor plan also features sliding, hiding, tucking and spinning walls to section off the kitchen and office from guests.
