Tru Vue Featured on Designing Spaces Episode

Segment highlights custom picture framing and the
differences in glazing options


McCook, IL, – Designing Spaces™ airing on Lifetime® TV is an award-winning home improvement show that travels the country to remodel, redecorate, and redesign the spaces we call home. Tru Vue will be featured on the show January 7th 2022 and re-air on January 13th 2022.


The segment highlights the many ways in which consumers can preserve and protect photographs, heritage items, sports memorabilia, and memories. During the segment the design process, as highlighted by FrameWorks Miami, takes a consultative approach to ensure that consumers’ vision comes to life. “We love the challenge of guiding a consumer through their options and ultimately helping create something that they can be proud of” says Cris Sweeny, Co-Owner of FrameWorks Miami.


A final step in the design process is glazing selection. The segment features both Tru Vue Museum Glass and Optium Acrylic projects and shares details about the different considerations for choosing the right glazing. “While there are trade-offs to the options, this segment provides more awareness for the consumer audience. It was important to highlight why glass selection is critical so that consumers understand the value offered in a custom picture framing experience.” states Dot Heckle, Director of Marketing for Tru Vue.


“FrameWorks really benefits from all of Tru Vue’s marketing support. It is a key factor in how we work with consumers and help them choose the right glazing,” notes Claire Lardner, Co-founder of FrameWorks Miami. “When they see the displays for the first time and understand the trade-offs, it’s that ‘ah-ha’ moment and finishing touch to their projects.”
Airing nationally twice, the segment will also air an additional 300 times in syndication throughout the U.S and be streamed online to reach millions of viewers. To learn more about this episode, please visit
