Looking at the pic I'd say the base is but the seat and the back look custom built. If you look at it the base has a far higher sheen than the rest of the chair which I'd assume is cut out of wood.

I noticed also that no one's sitting in them... they don't look to be the most ergonomically-designed chairs I've ever seen. ;)

I haven't done a full top-to-bottom search of every episode (since I've got bigger fish to fry), but we see this odd seat and chair back modification to a Burke chair base a few times:

In "Taste of Armageddon" (and yes, Kirk is sitting in it):



In "Devil In The Dark:"



And, with a new paint job, in "Operation--Annihilate!:"

Hm. You could go back and look to see if that old trombone mute thread has this picture in it to find out. ;) (The answer is yes.)  Yes, those are McCoy's er, whatever-they-ares. Not only that, but all the other bottles next to the mutes (on either side of them)--the bluish and goldish flask-things and the funny ones that look like Odo's bucket--are *also* in McCoy's cabinet and were pulled to decorate Sam Kirk's research lab set.

Greg, I was wondering if it's out of order for me to ask who the manufacturer of the coffee service is, if indeed you know?

It looks as though it might have Arne Jacobsen's Cylinda series in it's spiritual ancestry, but I don't recall seeing that specific design from Stelton or Bodum. Llundtofte DFK made at least one service that's reasonably similar, but not a match.

Is it scandinavian-made or American? I live in Stockholm, and there are a lot of antique shops on my island. I was thinking of scouting for any elements this group this weekend...

Oh mam!  I finally found one and it is over $400...

Yes.  Collecting crappy old vintage Trek kitsch (especially Gabis Stainless Coffee Sets) is not for the faint of heart (or pocketbook.).
