I believe they are, Quill is owned by Staples. I ordered my chair last week and it was shipped directly from Raynor in Southern California.
Do you recommend getting the headrest? I'm not sure I'll like it, but for $10 I don't see why I shouldn't get it. Is it removable? And is mid-back the same as high-back with the exception of the headset on the latter? Should I pay premium for leather? I feel like it would last a little longer than mesh.
