Toptal is a marketplace featuring professional designers you can hire for any sized project. SubtlePatterns is a free resource of hundreds, thousands? of wallpaper backgrounds. You will see some of these wallpapers featured on the homepage.
The value of a curated list is in the selection of features, not necessarily in the categories themselves. I can't vouch for every resource, the curio shop of digital goodies at GraphicBurger will keep you occupied if you dig in.
Pixeden offers a similar range of features as other sites on this list, but they offer their service at a cost of $6 per month. Take a tour of their site to find out if their offer is qualitatively different from other free offerings.
Free, Plus an Premium tiers: the hallmark of the freemium model is what's happening at Pixelbuddha. Look for high quality offers in exchange for signing up and if you aren't making money yet, navigate out to cheaper solutions.
ThePatternLibrary specializes in bold, unsubtle patterns, celebrating loud, outspoken design. The site itself doesn't work well on all browsers. It can be a bit frustrating. Download for free if you can get it to work.
