Retro patterns and designs

Where can I find patterns similar to this?

I'm looking for retro- and solid patterns with good geometry and curves and fun shapes that I can use to add texture to web page headers and to site backgrounds. Multi-tonal, colorful designs are good, but I'm not sure what exactly to search for in Google Images and the like to garner this sort of result. (I got this design off the back off a Microsoft Xbox business card.)

Any suggestions and links to high-res shots get bonus points, but whatever you can throw to me would be fantastic.

It sort of reminds me of the abstract stuff done by Marimekko and Ljungberg. You can find more here.

You'd probably like the patterns (they call them "tableclothes") at Everyday Icons.

K10K has a great patterns section. Squidfingers is an excellent resource, as well.
