Is IKEA's Vaster Floor Lamp Bright Enough to Replace Overhead Light?

Good Questions

Q: Hello! Like many of your readers, my husband and I live in a small NYC apartment with no overhead light. So, we need a floor lamp! We tried an arc lamp and it didn't really work in the space so we're back on the hunt. I saw the Vaster floor lamp on the ikea website and it looked great so we went to check it out in person. Because of the very open and well lit warehouse space the lighting department is in, it was REALLY hard to tell if it was a bright enough light or not. Does anyone have the Vaster floor lamp? Is it bright?
