What is this for, and how can I hide it?

We have a storage room (that we converted into an office) in the room behind our garage. When we bought the place, this weird pipe thing was already there,

sticking out of the floor and the wall.

What is it? And how can we hide it? We already have a built-in desk along one wall of the office, so we don‘t want to add more cabinetry to the space. We plan to hang a big framed vertical mirror on the wall above it, but want to know a good way to cover these eyesores.

Thank you for your ideas!!
