CHICAGO, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- BBJ, a Chicago-based linen rental company, recently launched Atelier by BBJ: www.atelierbbj.com, a retail website focused on offering linen and home goods to homeowners. As a leader in the event linen rental industry since 1983, BBJ carries over their table décor and design expertise to the Atelier business that provides custom design, in-house manufacturing, and sale of unique home décor and accessories. Atelier products are for sale at their showroom and online, with nationwide shipping available.
This retail website features clean lines and a smooth-functioning interface, great for shopping for various housewares and other accessories. Products are available for several rooms of the home, including the kitchen, dining room, bedroom, bath, living room and family rooms. From table accessories to handbags and everything in between, Atelier aims to bridge the gap between BBJ's rental services and residential home product needs.
With the launch of this new site, many of the same fabrics that BBJ customers are familiar with will be available in new product offerings perfectly sized and designed for homes. New linen products include dining and kitchen tablecloths, throw pillows, shower curtains, fashion aprons and more. Atelier also offers a selection of handbags, including totes, clutches and purses, by Lola Valentina. Many products are created with BBJ fabrics that customers are familiar with while others introduce all new textiles.
BBJ President Bonnie Dannen said of the Atelier launch, "We are proud to offer customers products from a brand they can rely on for quality, and now we have expanded our line from rentals only to retail sales—now, our customers have all of the BBJ fabrics they know and love available to them for use in the home, from pillows and pillow covers to table linens and table runners, napkins, handbags, and much more. We are pleased to bring our design and artistry expertise to homeowners all over."
The launch of the website comes shortly after the opening of the local Atelier showroom and design center in Skokie, IL, adjacent to BBJ's corporate showroom and headquarters. At the local showroom, Atelier also offers customers the option to work with a designer in creating customized products, with a selection of fabrics for patterns, reverse and trim options, resizing, and other design elements. This allows Atelier customers to truly make the product their own—perfect for having one-of-a-kind home décor and accessories.
Atelier has a heavy focus on unique design, with "atelier" being a French word meaning artist's workshop or designer's studio. With that in mind, BBJ has created Atelier to design and craft quality, unique home décor and accessories that allow homeowners to distinguish themselves, and set their homes apart, with products not found elsewhere. Designed and made in the United States, at the Skokie, IL showroom, Atelier products offer their customers the high level of quality to match that of BBJ Linen.

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
