Thanks for the report, however there's not much that can be done to resolve this issue.

The issue in question is a "precision issue" bug. When you set your Clip Start value to a really small number, all the precision made available to Blender by your computer components are wasted on the first few millimetres infront of the camera. This leaves small amounts of precision left for rendering objects further away like the sofa in your scene or the default cube. And this lack of precision shows up as the artifacts you seem.

The only way to resolve it is to use a higher level of precision, but the side effect to that is rendering of the viewport will slow down, and potentially by a large amount.
