I have this Ikea Floor Uplight lamp and I want to replace the current CFL light bulb with an LED light bulb. I'm thinking of using a Philips 433235 60 Watt Equivalent SlimStyle A19 LED Light Bulb (Daylight, Dimmable).
I use this lamp next to a desk which is about 3 ft to the left and 3 ft below the light bulb. Will the lamp still illuminate the desk as well as (or better than) the 60 Watt Equivalent CFL light bulb?
I've been reading that LED light bulbs light in one direction as opposed to CFLs which radiate light in all directions. However, the Phillips LED light bulb I'm considering claims that it radiates light in all directions. Has anyone had any experience with those types of LED light bulbs that claim omnidirectional lighting?
EDIT: Fixed typo "radiates life in all directions"
