Help with Plant ID

I just got this plant at the garden center today, and I have no clue what it is. The tag said "Elegant Accent" and that's about it. The stems seem to be fairly succulent and hairy. As you can see the leaves are variegated. It's currently in a 4 inch pot. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

I think that's a Pilea. They like shade, humidity and can take pruning to make them less scary looking.
