REVIEW – Dark. It is something to be eradicated in a home. If you have a too-dark corner, a floor lamp that shines up as well as diffusing light all around can turn that dark corner into a design highlight. BoostArea has just such a solution with its 9-Watt LED floor lamp. Is it a bright idea? Let’s take a look!

Design and features
Setup takes just a few minutes.
You screw the first rod into the base and continue screwing the rods together until you reach the lamp assembly. The lamp assembly screws into the top of the assembled rod and the shade screws into the top of the lamp assembly. All through the assembly process, you pull the power cord through the base to take up the necessary slack for shipping.
The flat black metal assembly looks modern and clean.
The single LED light sits in the center of the up-facing diffusing shade, under a diffusing cover.
The knurled, rotating on/off switch is located near the top of the lamp, just below the shade.
The lamp, with its diffusing shade, produces a very pleasing light. Its warm white color is easy on the eyes and doesn’t range into the blue spectrum, so it won’t negatively affect sleep.
The light shines both up to the ceiling and spreads out and down because of the translucent shade.
The light output is only 800 lumens or a 60-watt incandescent equivalent, so this is more of an accent lamp than a primary room lamp.
What I like
- Good looks
- Easy assembly
- Pleasing light output
What I’d change
- Not very bright, but that is by design
This is a very basic floor lamp. It turns on and turns off and produces nice, warm white light. It has a modern look and would look good in most homes. In my opinion, it is best suited for a corner to maximize light bouncing off the surrounding walls and ceiling. If you need a not-too-bright accent lamp, at this price, this lamp is a solid choice.
