It's a Coleus. There are many varieties, each with a different leaf pattern. Probably someone will soon tell you which variety this one is.

It's one of 2,000, but likely a rainbow or wizard mix entity.

pinch off the seed ... now

and as winter goes on.. and it gets leggy and ugly.. being that it roots freely ... like in days... root a new one.. and when it is all potted up and settled in .. throw out the ugly one ...

they are not house plants.. and that is why they tend to get ugly indoors ... but in this case.. to offset that.. you just cycle thru them all winter..

and then put it back outside when all frost is gone.. and the soil warms ....

in march or so.. you could start propagating extras.. to have a bunch ready for going outside ... if you have the room or a fluorescent light ....

in my z5 MI ... it would be very touchy to the window getting real cold at night ....

the other issue for me.. is it will struggle with the forced air furnace.. and lack of humidity in the house ... come jan/feb .. about the time everyone in the family is complaining about dry skin.. go figure ....

all that said.. it is one of the easy garden plants to winter over.... in the house... i am just telling you how to have pretty plants .. rather than ugly ones....
