Your hose hook up for the gas line should permit enough space that your stove will hide the lower section of the pipe.
Other than building a customized piece for the section remaining (without coming too close to the pipe), I'm not sure how you could hide it.
First thought is to run it under the floor or move the pipe. But if that isn't possible you could make a removable box to fit around it. Sort of cover it up or hide it in plain site.
As Olivia said, your stove will hide the lower portion. As to the rest, how about building a simple 1/2" thick plywood box about 18-24" wide that would reach to the ceiling, and you could hang by screwing into two small L-brackets at the top and seal the sides to the wall with caulk? Then cover the box with that faux brick paneling they sell at Home Depot/Lowe's (or faux paint it same) to create the look of an uncovered old brick stack wall.
Place your stove and fridge where you want them. Like Beth suggests. Measure and build a three sided box to cover the pipe.
Unfortunately the stove will not cover the bottom portion. The pipe is three inches away from the wall. The stove will go next to it, therefore, I will have a space in between the stove and fridge that to me will be ugly.
If you don’t need the gas line - have it capped and cut off and moved under the floor into basement ceiling/crawl space. That way all of your space is freed up.
