Paragon Pools’ designs featured in new book
Designs by Las Vegas pool builder Paragon Pools are featured in “Outdoor Kitchens and Fireplaces,” a new 111-page book written by Tina Skinner and published by Schiffer Publishing.
“This book takes you into more than 100 backyards where you can explore the clever ways in which indoor living has been brought outdoors,” Skinner wrote in her introduction.
Paragon Pools has 13 photographs presented in the book edition, including one that shares the cover.
On page 92, is one of the company’s most innovative designs, the WetFlame, a combination fire and water feature developed by Joe Vassallo, president of Paragon Pools.
“Fire features with pools and spas have become a priority on the homeowner’s wish list. Our design team conceives unique and modern ways to present the common campfire,” Vassallo said.
Mary Vail, a Las Vegas publicist, is the exclusive photographer for the pool-building company.
