Rania Abillama

Rania, an industrialist turned gallerist, has found a second home on the Cycladic island of Folegandros, where she revels in her love for both the mountains and the sea.

Her journey began with the founding of her gallery, "Over the Counter," in Beirut. This venture honed her ability to scout for beautiful objects.

Driven by a desire to work with her hands, Rania started to intervene on traditional Greek artifacts sourced from flea markets around Greece. Her vision was to enhance vintage items, already rich with stories and soul, to contribute to their ongoing narratives.

Her Cycladic inspirations include Greek icons, whitewashed beaches, the blowing Meltemi, and mineral landscapes.
