Adding a couple "inverter only" outlets and feeding them through a cord with a plug on each end is a pretty common setup.
I suppose you could use the same concept to feed an existing outlet and that would back-feed all the outlets on that circuit - BUT you have to have a fool proof method to isolate that circuit from the shore power feed and make sure you never had shore power back feeding into your inverter. I would never try this setup - I would end up frying something inadvertently at some point.
If you really want to feed a circuit of outlets, I would say get a transfer switch like this:
Amazon.com: Xantrex Inline Transfer Relay f/PROwatt SW: Electronics
This would connect your inverter to the circuit for your outlets and only allow the inverter to power the circuit when shore power (or generator power) isn't available. There is a remote panel available as well, which can be handy depending on where the inverter and the switch are physically located. The 1000W pure sine inverter your have with a switch like this would make a pretty nice setup.
