EC Outlet is the go-to place for anyone looking to purchase from an extensive inventory of quality home furnishings, art, rugs, and accessories at greatly reduced prices. Many items are from model homes which were custom created by our interior designers selecting product from manufacturers of well-known furniture and accessory brands.

Where does EC Outlet product come from?

Our agreement with the area’s largest home builder to purchase all of their furniture, art, accessories, rugs, lamps, and more from their fully designed model homes allows Outlet customers access to designer-selected home décor with prices at or below cost. Also, we offer new merchandise from close-outs from the Elizabeth Cole designer showroom, as well as new product purchased specifically for the Outlet. 

Where is EC Outlet located?

The EC Outlet product is clearly marked and displayed both in the EC Showroom and the back warehouse. EC Outlet provides bargain shoppers, stagers, and designers a venue that has a lot of product that is constantly changing at prices that are hard to beat.

Services Offered

EC Design offers complete turn-key project management for our clients such as home builders needing a showcase home fully furnished and accessorized, or staging properties for real estate agents or investors seeking a competitive advantage in selling their homes, or a homeowner embarking on new construction, needing help with updating their interiors or doing a complete re-model, as well as commercial projects including corporate office suites and public areas, community club houses, residential leasing lobbies and common spaces.

How We Work For you

Our design process begins with our team listening to our clients’ specific and unique needs and wants. Questions such as how will the space be used, who will occupy the space, what are the aesthetics, what functionality needs to be achieved, and what are the economic goals are only a few that are asked in our initial meeting with prospective clients whether they are home builders, corporate executives, realtors, or homeowners.

The Dragonfly Logo ‘History’

Our dragonfly was created by Ruben Freeman, a valued member of our design team who has been with us since our doors opened in 2009. The dragonfly symbolizes happiness, harmony, change, and new beginnings. It is representative of our design philosophy and goals. Small changes to colors, layout, and fabrics can easily improve your mood and evoke positive feelings! Beautifully designed, inspired spaces can actualize transformation.

Our Story

What Our Customers Say...

Erin has been fabulous to work with! From the moment I got a nearly immediate response from a Facebook message I sent confirming they were open to the public. Erin has been fantastic! She is very professional, helpful and FUN! Furniture shopping should be enjoyable, and Erin definitely makes it a great experience. Thank you for
all of your help with my living and dining room makeover. I can’t wait to get everything and see my rooms go from blah, brown and boring to bright and beautiful!

Stefani Harris

The window treatments and installation far exceeded my expectations. It is fabulous!

Pam Murray

We worked with Cynthia (on drapery) on multiple occasions and we are always extremely impressed with her customer service and ease of working through the project. She helps us budget out what is realistic for each specific project. We look forward to more projects with her in the future!

Anna Sandberg

My husband LOVES the dining room! He keeps going in there and turning on the lights and saying “man I love these curtains!” After the holidays, can you come back and let’s work on the living room and upstairs game room? He likes the curtains so much in the dining and was wondering if we could use that in the living. I told him it might be too much of a good thing, but would let you decide when you come out. Just put my on your schedule after the new year and let me know! Thank you again! We just love you!

Marilyn Goff

Thank you SO much…they look awesome. Yes, you are a perfectionist and I love it!!!

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how pleased I am with how everything turned out at my house. It was a rough start, but the items Mary and Valerie picked turned out great. I picked up my last item (for now) last week and it now looks complete. I had a small family gathering over the holidays and received lots of compliments! I still have two rooms left and I’m looking forward to working with your team again. Thanks a lot.


Love the atmosphere and helpfulness of staff! They are super accommodating to me as a local designer and my clients when I send them in. A Houston gem for sure!
