gallery dwells inside a 1910 neoclassical building

 

Set inside a 1910 neoclassical building in the historic area of Plaka in Athens, Greece, Eleni Marneri Gallery invites visitors into an immersive showroom of fine jewelry and perfumes. The renewed interior, designed by its owner, Eleni Marneri, offers an eclectic mix of contemporary materials and existing elements of the early 20th-century building. Themed chambers showcase fine jewelry collections by Greek and international designers in custom-built cabinets, alongside artworks and eclectic fragrances, including a room dedicated to Santa Maria Novella, the artisanal fragrance house from Florence dating back to 1221.

Eleni Marneri Gallery stands as a destination for contemporary jewlery design, curating collections and exhibitions devoted to aesthetics for over three decades now. Art nouveau and art deco elements alongside marble accents echo the gallery’s aesthetic legacy in both the facade and its interiors. Patterned flooring and stone details on the walls welcome visitors inside a serene space of soft hues and gentle lighting. Inox and mirror surfaces on the counters and jewlery displays add a contemporary feel to the electric mix of materials.
