It's a digital design language that exists to provide information in a concise and efficent way, so I'm not quite sure that works.
But if you want to be inspired by it, I suppose you could get stuff that serves its purpose without being cluttered with additional design that isn't functional. I could see how it could work with things like clocks, where the purpose is to convey information.
Not so sure about stuff like tables and beds.

well i do remember microsofts vision for the future video's. but the furniture there was pretty stale looking. almost akin to future dystopia movies like the hunger games, soylent green, and sleeper.Windows phone 8. Born in the year of our lord twenty twelve

IKEA has great Metro themed furniture! I own this stuff (albeit mine are all black/brown):
KARLSTAD Sofa - Blekinge white - IKEA
LACK TV unit - birch effect - IKEA
LACK Coffee table - black-brown, 35 3/8x21 5/8 " - IKEA
LACK Side table - white, 21 5/8x21 5/8 " - IKEA
MALM Bed frame - black-brown, Queen - IKEA
The bedframe allows attachments, which is awesome. Don't let them poke fun at you about this, either--I'm taking Metro into my whole life!
