On the Edge: 21 Stunning Infinity Pool Designs
A well designed swimming pool is the liquid centerpiece of your home and can turn your backyard into a decadent escape. An infinity edge pool (also named negative edge, zero edge, disappearing edge or vanishing edge pool) is a swimming or reflecting pool which produces a visual effect of water extending to the horizon, vanishing, or extending to “infinity”. They are often seen at fancy or exotic resorts, exclusive estates, and in advertisements. The infinity pool design concept is said to have originated in Bali, Indonesia, where its inspiration came directly from observing the dramatic effect created by the ubiquitous terraced rice paddies, known locally as sawah, for which the island is famous (Wikipedia). An infinity pool is definitely the most luxurious water feature you can have at home. And in this heat, we pretty much can’t think of anything else we would rather be doing than taking a dip in one. Visually stunning and always situated on a gorgeous backdrop, Infinity pools are surely the most beautiful man-made pools in existence.
