Ideas to cover up a closet?

I have just moved into a new apartment that has a six foot wide closet in the middle of one living room wall. The problem is that this wall is the best place for my 7 foot sofa. And I don't want to see the closet behind the sofa.

The problem is that this wall is the best place for my 7 foot sofa. And I don't want to see the closet behind the sofa.

I was thinking of finding the longest sofa back table I can find to put behind the sofa. And then putting one, possibly even two, rice paper screen(s) on top of the sofa back table. This should cover most, if not all, of the closet right up to near the ceiling. Maybe I'd add a slender vase with some tall vegetation (maybe pussy willow branches) to break the monotony simply. Maybe put an uplight behind the screen to add ambient lighting. Does this sound like a tasteful solution? Any other suggestions?

Not worried about "losing" the closet as I'll use it to store luggage and other things not used frequently.
