Who We Are

Cove & Co. is the new name for Colourtrend Paints & Wallpaper Stores, now branding our seven locations under this fresh identity. However, recognising the iconic status of MRCB Paint & Paper in Dublin City—synonymous with the world of paint and interior design—we have chosen a special approach for this location. It will be renamed Cove & Co X MRCB, maintaining its historic name while integrating our new brand vision.

Cove & Co X MRCB is an Irish owned Family Business. Supplying products to the Painting & Decorating Industry and Public for decades. We are renowned for our Technical Expertise, Product Knowledge and Award-Winning Customer Service. Celebrating over 80 years in business, MRCB remains the oldest and leading shopping destination in Dublin for all your decorating needs.

Our History

Originally opening at Lord Edward Street,in Dublin. MRCB was set up Marcel Regent & Charles Bigoud, hence the use of their intitials for the company name. Both of French Nationality, they were the original salesmen of the time. Known as Travelling Peddlers, they would go from town to town selling their merchandise from a suitcase. Arriving in Dublin in the 1930’s it was here they decided to settle, calling Ireland home, they abandoned their suitcases and set up shop.

A love of colour, new brands and exciting designs continued to see them travel to Trade Fairs where they selected exquisite and exclusive brands to bring home to sell in Dublin. Marcel & Charles were first to introduce the concept of wall murals for home décor.

With a mission to serve the Professional Painter and Decorators of the time, the store quickly developed the reputation as leading stockists with the most comprehensive range of paint brands, tools and specialist products for the design sector. A reputation which has continued as MRCB remains proud to continue to stock over 8,500 different items at any one time.

MRCB received an award in 2016 from Benjamin Moore Paints for the launch and introduction of the brand to the Irish Market. It is this drive and determination from Kevin Coughlan, together with his Management Team and Staff, which ensures MRCB remains the Destination Store at the heart of Dublin.
