Exclusive RED HOT 100 book launch at The Conran Shop Chelsea

Red Hot 100 book cover

From Rita Hayworth, to Julianne Moore to Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, a fiery red mane has helped turn many a woman into an instant sex symbol.

While ginger females reign supreme, male counterparts are often left out of the limelight until now. Think Prince Harry, Damien Lewis and Eddie Redmayne, ginger is no longer a dirty word as redheaded males take centre stage.

Celebrating red-haired male beauty and challenging negative ginger stereotypes comes RED HOT 100 – a groundbreaking coffee table book showcasing the hottest redhead guys in the world.

RED HOT 100 will be launching at The Conran Shop Chelsea with an exclusive book signing with the man behind the concept, fashion photographer and music video director, Thomas Knights. From 6-8pm, on Wednesday 15th October 2014.

A natural redhead himself, Knights has experienced personally the negative perceptions that come with being ginger, and having no red-haired male public role models to persuade him otherwise, he grew up feeling ashamed of his red roots.

RED HOT 100 aims to redefine the image of the redheaded male and positively rebrand ‘the ginger.’

Featuring famous faces such as Vampire Diaries actor Daniel Newman and Olympic Gold Medallist Greg Rutherford, the men featured in RED HOT 100 are masculine, chiselled, cool, and proud of the way they look.

As Knights explains: “We have been conditioned to think ginger men are ugly and weak. I wanted to flip this on its head and present the redheaded male as the ‘ultimate’ alpha male.”

RED HOT 100 will be available to buy in store and online for £50. RSVP is essential as places to our exclusive book launch with music by Brodanse are strictly limited: rsvp@conran.com

Drinks will be provided for the evening by Little Bird Gin, which is also available to buy in store, Fever-Tree and Gingerella.

Discover our new and exclusive furniture collections

IMG_2089_SKU-670x796

As the nights draw in and we all spend more time indoors, we can’t stop thinking about ways to add warmth and comfort to our home.

Right now we’re daydreaming about curling up by the fire, settling into the sofa and indulging in a new book. Make the most of autumn nights by updating your living room with opulent upholstery in warm, rich fabrics.

They say there is no such thing as bad weather, just wrong clothes. The same applies for furniture. Investing in a new sofa or statement armchair is bound to make the new season more bearable and certainly more comfortable and stylish.

Made in the UK and Italy, this autumn sees the launch of six new furniture collections and pieces designed by The Conran Shop. You will be spoilt for choice. Meet Clement, Chiltern, Float, Elsa, Elgin and Lavenham.

The Clement collection – including a two-seat sofafootstool and armchair – is characterised by its loose covering and contemporary twist on traditional country style. The Chiltern sofa features fixed upholstery and cast gunmetal legs, while the generous cushions and walnut legs of the Float range has a distinctly relaxed yet modern feel.

Made in Italy, the Elsa and Elgin collections are the embodiment of refined style thanks to their sleek low profile and use of Italian leather. Elsa, with her zigzag topstitch detailing and cast metal legs, and Elgin with his solid walnut base, are both available in an array of colours and fabrics.

Arguably one of the most popular designs for its easy elegance is the Lavenham collection. Designed and made in the UK with solid hardwood frames, the style features loose covers neatly finished with French seams in Belgium linen.

The Lavenham range features a three-seat sofa, armchair, footstoollove seat and bed and is available in a vast variety of new season colours including our signature aubergine.

Introduce one of these statement-making designs into your home and you’ll be glad for the longer nights, shorter days and prospect of spending extra time indoors.

Prices start from £995. Visit one of our stores or browse online for a closer look.
