At that time, there were professors who designed and built fireplaces In Dublin. Then the fireplace gradually shifts from everyday function to art. Even though today, its form is still being appreciated. At that time, the fireplace was regarded as much important as the car of the industrial age. Until today, the mainstream fireplace styles of European and American fireplaces were almost determined by the architects of that time.

 

In the 18th and 19th centuries, under the influence of the British, French and American nobles had the fireplace in almost every room. There are fireplaces in the living room, foyer, dining room, bedroom, bathroom, and even in the gun room.
