Like any other joint, if the two parts fit together well and if there is enough glue surface area, the strength should be adequate for the purpose. For aesthetic purposes, I wouldn’t use it on a piece of furniture that will be on display and might be considered “fine” furniture unless the joint will be hidden somehow. For me, a lap joint is mainly for utilitarian purposes. Having said that, the obvious joint line could be worked into a design and placed and/or repeated in such a way as to become an acceptable feature.
