Maybe one of the variegated varieties of Carex? There are some with green centers, cream to white margins/edges and others with cream to white centers and green margins. Two from our database:

Japanese Grass Sedge (Carex morrowii 'Ice Dance')
Japanese Grass Sedge (Carex morrowii 'Variegata')

I agree it seems to be a Sedge, but I have no idea which. Lin's suggestions look good to me.

Englisheccentric, I think your "grass" is an Iris relative: Sisyrinchium striatum. If you zoom in on my picture, you can see some black leaves at the base. I never thought of it as a houseplant, and it may not like that environment. Not enough light, and too much water would be my best guess..
