I don't think I've ever seen this type of veneer on something like that!!

Anigre (I think it's pronounced (ANN-ah-gray) was big, too, in the mid 90s to early 2000s. White oak, ash, and walnut hadn't yet picked up like they have in recent years. :-p
I did some work in this one building lobby a couple of years ago, and I *think* it's the largest single installation of real flamed wood veneer I've seen. This photo under-represents the scale of how big it feels in person. I'm not 100% sure if it's flamed maple, or maybe flamed sycamore (my old job had a flamed sycamore table that looked a lot like maple) or maybe something else.
Lobby at 560 Mission, San Francisco:
I don't *think* the ceiling is figured maple, though...
Oh, and for some reason, the lobby always smelled like vomit to me. I wonder if they used some sort of adhesive that has butyl acetate? It's the only thing I could think of that smells so distinctly like vomit (I had some Craftsman screwdrivers that had the same smell, and the plastic handles used that chemical/compound.
