I have come across this issue as well. It was happening in beta also. The blue and yellow rug and the old brown tattered rug both have problems. When they are placed somewhere it is not possible to pick them up again and move them later. I found the same bug issue with the new ship in a bottle. I put it outside my Volcano Island house (on the dock), but when I went to change the angle and position I could not pick it up again to move it or rotate it. Some of the wall decorations have had this issue as well (crossed swords, skull flag).
yar mate, valcano house, only two rugs one is burgundy the other blue/yellow, carpets, whatever you want to call them, once laid, i cant pick them up or even turn them right or left without picking up all the items in house to attic sorry i am not at my game right now and cant look up the name of the rugs, but there are only two i have found so far, the one layed in dorm room and the blue/yellow
