I'd always thought that a "Laurel lamp" was a kind of description for a lamp, but lo and behold, its actually a lamp manufacturer from the 1960's. Sadly the internet has not dug up much info that I can find regarding the company and their catalog, but I have found some primo examples of some sweet sweet lamps:
I plucked all of these off of 1st dibs, except the first all yellow one that's on ebay here (a steal! buy it now $220), so beware they all have rather high (4 figures and up) prices.
I managed to snag a small table Laurel lamp myself (thus prompting the research), but it is in need of some electrical repair...full post to come in all its lit up modernist glory in the near future.
