The parlor set is heavy and sturdy and came very well packed and protected. I love that there is built in storage with the drawers and window seat. As others have mentioned the window seat is a little short and makes sitting awkward but it does work. There is an elastic loop in one corner of the curtain that's supposed to hold it up, but I think a piece of ribbon or something that ties may have looked a little better.
The firescreen is embroidered and is very well made. The wood is similar in color to Rebecca's settee, but it has a matte finish where as the settee has a shiny finish.
The horse is plastic and looks odd with a blue mane and tail, red blobs on it's body and a wonky looking back leg on one side. The rest of the accessories are great. The ship is plastic, but has fabric sails. The fabric is folded over on one side so you can really only display one side of the ship. The sailor's valentine has a nice rich wood frame. I love that the picture/mirror is 2 sided so you can change the look.
I think this would work well in a modern setting too if you change up some of the accessories.
