Meet the Press” on NBC uses bold red stools that feature a foot ring. This type of chair is commonly referred to as a drafting stool and can be adjusted to both counter and bar height.

Most of the chairs NBC uses are inspired by designs used by Eames, though they have been widely replicated by other furniture makers, making it easy to find something similar for your home or office.
