The Blend of history and modern day comes by many old traditions of St. Patrick’s Day and the history of Architectural cultures.



St Patrick's Day celebrations have been greatly influenced by those that developed among the Irish diaspora, especially in North America. Until the late 20th century, St Patrick's Day was often a bigger celebration among the diaspora than it was in Ireland.





Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilithe (Irish traditional music sessions), and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks There are also formal gatherings such as banquets and dances, although these were more common in the past. St Patrick's Day parades began in North America in the 18th century but did not spread to Ireland until the 20th century. The participants generally include marching bands, the military, fire brigades, cultural organizations, charitable organizations, voluntary associations, youth groups, fraternities, and so on. However, over time, many of the parades have become more akin to a carnival. More effort is made to use the Irish language; especially in Ireland, where the week of St Patrick's Day is "Irish language week". Recently, famous landmarks have been lit up in green on St Patrick's Day. The White House, The Chicago River, The Empire State Building and even the Historical Coliseum in Rome all participate in the Irish Tradition of green lighting to signify LUCKY shamrocks for St. Pattys Day!



From the walls of St. Patrick to Gothic architecture a style of construction that flourished in Europe, England and Ireland during the high and late medieval period. It evolved from Romanesque architecture and was succeeded by Renaissance architecture. Originating in 12th-century France and lasting into the 16th century, Its exterior characteristics include the pointed arch, the ribbed vault (which evolved from the joint vaulting of romanesque architecture) and the flying buttress. Gothic architecture is most familiar as the architecture of many of the great cathedrals, abbeys and churches of Europe. It is also the architecture of many castles, palaces, town halls, guild halls, universities and to a less prominent extent, private dwellings, such as dorms and rooms.



Pearlworks has put its own flare on the Gothic Interior Designs. From Low relief ceilings using geometric shapes to tall arches and medieval panels all to add elegance to any room!





Pearlworks accents a room using the historical Celtic ring. The Celtic Ring is a traditional Irish ring given which represents love, loyalty, and friendship. The design and customs associated with it originated in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh, located just outside the old city walls of Galway, now part of Galway City. The ring, as currently known, was first produced in the 17th century. Pearlworks has created their own version or this symbol to grace the projects good luck in any room!
