A Wood Paneled Wall Opens To Reveal A Hidden TV Inside This New York Apartment

Pulltab Design has completed the Highline Residence, a modern apartment in New York, that includes clever design elements to make the most of the interior.

One of those design elements is a wood wall in the living room that is part of a teak cube. Visible upon entry into the apartment, the teak cube has a folding wall that opens to reveal the television. This allows for the television to be hidden when not in use, creating an uncluttered interior.

Adjacent to the cube is a secondary wood wall. This wall has pivoting teak panels that match the cube and reveal the dining room, creating a more open floor plan.

By having wood panels separating the living room from the dining room, it allowed the apartment owners to transition the dining room into a second bedroom when needed as they grow their family.

Let’s have a look around the rest of the apartment…

The entryway is minimally furnished with a simple console table and a round mirror that has the teak cube as a backdrop.

Here you can see the view of the dining room with the pivoting wood panels closed, essentially creating a completely separate room, as there’s a door in a hallway providing alternative access.

Shortly after this project was completed, the dining room was transformed into a nursery, while the dining table and chairs were moved to the empty space at the end of the sofa in the living room, creating an open plan living/dining area.

The apartment also has a main bedroom that includes wood furniture, pops of color, and a graphic accent wall.
