Chrome P-Trap to ABS Drain

I'm redoing my en-suite bathroom and want to change the previous abs p trap to a nice shiney new chrome p trap like this:

I figured I'd need to use something like this:

combined with this:

to get the drain from the sink to the vertical abs in the wall. Unfortunately there isn't enough room in a 2x4 wall for the combination of the two fittings. My goal is to get it to look good, similar to :
with no ABS showing at all. How do I achieve this in the most aesthetically pleasing way possible? The entire wall is open (no drywall) so I can go happy hardcore on any changes necessary.

You will want to set the 1 1/4" trap adapter so the threads start at the finished wall surface----this will allow you to tighten the nut that holds the P-trap.

You will need a chrome escutcheon that will cover the nut--there are several styles available---

If your that far off where you need a 90 your going to have to redo where the plumbing comes out of the wall prior to setting the vanity.

I didn't look at all your links at first- just thought you wanted to cover the trap adpt.
A solution is to offset the vertical waste and vent with 45's so it centers on your trap
