Hi Tigerlily, Welcome! to All Things Plants!

Your lovely plant looks like it might be Homalomena (Homalomena 'Emerald Gem')

I should have said that was just a guess on my part; my eyes aren't what they used to be and I have difficulty comparing photos. It could also possibly be a variety of Anthuriums (Anthurium)

Both are in the same family (Araceae) as Philodendron.
