An NYC Loft That Inspired The Set Of The Movie Ghost

Artist Michele Oka Doner’s New York loft is at once sculptural, organic and finely wrought, a direct result of her creative DNA. She transformed one floor of a former button factory into a living, breathing piece of art, which served as the model for the home of the potter played by Demi Moore in the 1990 movie Ghost.

The 5,000-plus-square-foot loft is a gallery of her works, a studio and an arena to display the natural objects that inspire her daily. Michele’s pieces — from relief prints to clay sculptures to massive cast-metal objects — are scattered throughout the space. Furnishings, also designed by Michele, blend in seamlessly. Click through to see inside the magnificent space.
