The Adirondack spirit soon showed itself in other pieces of Adirondack furniture as well.

Traditional Adirondack furniture is constructed of either cedar or pine, although some of the upscale manufacturers do build teak and cypress Adirondack furniture. Lately, Adirondack furniture made from recycled plastic has become very popular because it is easy to maintain, looks like wood, and is extremely durable. Additionally, plastic Adirondack furniture is an environmentally conscious choice since a single Adirondack chair keeps about 500 recyclable milk jugs out of the landfill.
