The DeVance showroom is an absolute work of art. It showcases everything from lighting control and integration, a state-of-the-art theater, and a premium 2-channel showroom. The level of attention to detail and architectural styling cues throughout the building are truly something to experience first-hand. My favorite thing about visiting the DeVance showroom is their commitment to taking care of their staff. The upstairs has an area that showcases and celebrates their team’s tenure and certifications. This left quite an impression on me during my first visit, and it was easy to see why their team was all smiles.”
