An infinity edge pool  is a swimming or reflecting pool or pund that creates a visual effect of water increasing or expanding to the horizon, vanishing, or extending to “infinity.”

The term sometimes is also associated with perimeter overflow fountans and pools. One type of location in which the effect is particularly attractive and appealing is where the infinity edge appears to merge with a larger body of water such as the ocean, or with the sky.

Infinity edge pools are often seen at exclusive resorts, hotels and exclusive villas and estates, in advertisements and, promotions in other luxurious places. The infinity pool design concept  originated in France, where one of the first vanishing edge designs was utilized in the “Stag Fountain” at the Palace of Versailles in the early 1600s.
