Hiding a kitchen vent

I am running down a list of projects that need doing...top on the list is a repaint of the house, change out the counter tops in the kitchen, and if money allows...replace my Jenn Aire flat top electric stove with a gas stove. I have not been pleased with my Jenn Aire considering the cost, and do not want another JA ( the downdraft worked great...but that's all). Anyway my cabinets are in great shape so there is no need to replace them....however, how would I hide a 4 ft vent pipe above the cabinets?. My ceilings are 12 ft high and the cabinets only go up 8 ft. I am not looking to just do a sheet-rock box...because I think it would stick out like a sore thumb. Any Ideas? I will post a pic later today.
