ChairFX Chair Covers is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Kym and John McGrath. Kym and John have had varied careers and both worked in the music industry in London with artists such as The Pogues, Depeche Mode, Erasure, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Nick Cave and Moby before establishing ChairFX Chair Covers. Like most good ideas, ChairFX Chair Covers was born out of necessity in 2017.
Kym and her sister Kerry-Anne had perfectly good faux leather dining chairs which they didn’t want to throw out. However, they couldn’t find an Irish shop that sold chair covers. After being dissatisfied with various online chair cover purchases, they set about designing their own. Because they had to order in 300 pieces they decided to sell the extras at Kerry-Anne’s market stall but within 2 weeks they sold out. They repeated this several times before taking the plunge and ordering 18,000 units and renting a small shop as they had outgrown their tiny market stall.
ChairFX Chair Covers is open from Monday-Saturday 10am-5pm and is located on 5 John St, Gorey, Co Wexford, or check out their website at ChairFX.com.
