It is a knock off of a Pearsall I believe, many were made during that time of the popular styles.

You may want to also consider TVCoverUps. Framed artwork or panel provides the focal point of the room, until it swings upward to reveal the hidden TV. It comes in automatic and manual lifts and also allows for TV tilting hardware. It can be built to accommodate AV equipment, speakers, wires, Blu-Ray and other consoles. Each unit is built custom to the viewer and the space.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In honor of Alvar Aalto’s inspiration, two of his lounge chairs were chosen for the living room. The room lets the family and their friends gather and relax in the same space. The white panel on the bookcase slides over to reveal the television set.
Armchair 44. Speaking of MoMA, this apartment is adjacent to the MoMA and the owner and designer used MoMA's archives when choosing furniture. The armchairs are classic Aalto, crafted from bent birch wood into closed loops. See the rest of this apartment.

A portable room screen like this one can be moved around to different areas. Also, its unique construction lets it serve as a sculpture. See the rest of this home
