I'm stumped on what kind of plant this is

I have looked at many photos of house plants online and asked a friend who knows a lot about plants, and I still don't know what this plant is. [See photos here. The 3rd photo is of one of the 'berries' that fell of the plant recently.]

It's a plant I inherited from a friend who didn't know what it was either, and it's not entirely happy with whatever I'm doing, so I'm hoping to ID it so I can care for it properly.

Thanks for any help you can give!

K_in_Seattle- I believe you have an Ardisia. You should be able to cut it back when the display of berries is over. They like bright light. I keep mine moist at all times as they like this. They are more commonly known as Coral berry. Kyle
