In a previous post, I mentioned I purchased a ceiling light (specifically the Alico Lighting FML2030-10-16M) that felt rather expensive. Yes, it did seem that way, and when I casually asked a co-worker how much he would pay for a new light fixture in a closet, he said $20. I then informed him that fixtures are more expensive that he might think. So he upped it to $50. Then I explained how anything I was looking at was at least $75 and told my story. He wasn’t all too impressed by my final decision.
But, I think I am. When I got the package in the mail, I opened it up and was very impressed with what I saw. The light base was solid. Nice thick metal. The globe was nice and uniform, smooth, and made with thick, solid glass. So far, everything is built very well.
I mentioned the light is LED. Check out the LED arrays installed in the light. There’s two of them, each with an elevated glass diffuser plate to scatter the light throughout the globe.
Here’s a close up of one of the arrays:
Pretty nice design, I must say.
Of course, all the required hardware is included and a small allen key for the set screws that hold the globe in place. Mounted, there’s not really much to say about it. It’s damn bright. In a small closet with white ceilings and white walls, it’s more than fully sufficient.
This light is the 9” version and I will probably buy the 6” version for another bathroom ceiling light when the time comes to redo that room. I’m very satisfied with the quality of these lights. Yes, this light was $150 and the 6” version is going to be $70, but I am fairly certain they will last for many, many years and look great doing it.
