We've said it before and we'll say it again: Amazon has a bunch of home decor pieces that look expensive, but are ridiculously affordable. It's not that surprising, right? After all, you can buy just about everything (and we mean everything) at the mega-retailer—and usually for a low, fair price.

Of course, we're not the only ones who think Amazon is a decorating enthusiast's paradise. Truth is, plenty of interior designers can't get enough of Amazon's cheap thrills, either. Don't believe us? Here, eight designers share what they buy on Amazon for under $50. Psst… many of them are available for Prime shipping!

2. "Fashion: A History from the 18th to the 20th Century" by the Kyoto Costume Institute, $18

"The Lavande candles from Archipelago are a must in my home. The lavender scent is subtle and gives an immediate sense of calm to a room. They have such a nice glow, last for a long time and they burn clean—truly the perfect candle." —Cari Giannoulias

6. Household Essentials Ashwood Wall Mirror, $34

8. Frametory 16x20 Metal Picture Frame Collection, $30

"Galley walls are something my clients often struggle with. They want a stylish way to display family pictures, but want to avoid the cluttered look. Since most of us have photos in different sizes and in a blend of color and black and white, keeping the frames consistent is key. I love these modern gold frames that are available in a variety of sizes with a white mat that creates a custom look." —Abbe Fenimore, interior designer and founder of Studio Ten 25

9. Leagway Knitted Throw Blanket, $49

"Now that fall has made its arrival, it's time to break out the throw blankets. I love changing up the pillows and throws in my own home as the seasons change, but don't want to invest too much in the pieces. Throw blankets are one of my favorite cold weather home accessories. I like to have a few of them on hand in a basket nearby so that I can easily grab one when I'm lounging." — Abbe Fenimore

10. Sfeexun Decorative Candlestick Holder, $15 for two

"Candlestick holders are always a good go-to decor accessory to add to a coffee table, dining table, or bookcase. These candlesticks are very versatile and come in two heights, so you can buy multiple and make them a centerpiece on any surface." —Nina Magon, founder and principal of Contour Interior Design

11. PICCOCASA 100 Percent Cotton Knit Throw Blanket, $24

"Throw blankets are great decor pieces to place on sofas or at the ends of beds to create interest and break up the fabric. This blanket is neutral and can be mixed easily with most colors. [It's] 100 percent cotton and breathable, great for a light blanket to relax with." —Nina Magon

12. MYdrap Cotton Cocktail Napkin, $27

(Image credit: Amazon)

"Cotton over paper! When entertaining large groups, it's nice to offer a cotton cocktail napkin to dress up the experience. The napkins can be pulled off as if they were paper towels (or toilet paper), and with this price you can't go wrong!" Tom Stringer, interior designer

13. Hosley Set of 48 Unscented Clear Glass Wax Filled Votive Candles, $39

(Image credit: Amazon)
