You're not going find it. Wallpaper is currently out of style and patterns change constantly. The only way is if the original paper hangers bought extra and saved it.

There are a few companies that will custom make wallpaper per your design or copy an old paper. Short of that I agree with Norm, wallpaper patterns change throughout the years along with changes in how they are printed. Even if the same paper was still for sale the odds are it wouldn't be a perfect match.

Can't help with finding but just want to point out that wallpaper is actually back in style, but with updated colors and patterns.

Well I think that is a matter of opinion or perhaps the state of latest fad for the those with disposable income.
You cannot go into a Lowes or HD and buy it off the shelf like yesteryear. The store I work in use to carry wallpaper as a matter of course, but not for many, many years since. In fact I bet you'd be hard pressed to find a brick and mortar that sells wallpaper in any reasonable size town. Yes, it can be ordered online like most anything. But nowadays, convenience and ease of doing decorating reign supreme. Wallpapering is not an easy thing to do. Today's paint makes the job of decorating fast, easy and little clean up. And it's "cheap" to change it whenever you want.

IMHO, wallpaper will never make a comeback. It will always be around for those who really want it, and it may have a temporary "fad" status but will never replace paint or other home design products. Just say'n.

BTW...I have done it and some of our rooms still have on the walls. But every update or renovation it will be removed and replaced by paint or some other type of wall application. Heck even wood paneling is preferable to wallpaper in my mind. I have noticed that a wainscoting wall covering seems to be having the same "fad" come back as wallpaper. And I think that's because of the still current retro look for home decorating.

My parents house had windowed countertop to ceiling cupboards where all your dishes would be on display. That is also a "come back fad". But do most new homes have it? I think not. My son-in-law has that set of cupboards from my parents house sitting in his basement. I told him they would fetch a good buck if he tried to sell them.

It's been 40+ yrs since I've had any fondness for wallpaper. Having had to strip it more times than I care to remember is undoubtedly the reason why. I always assumed that was the reason it isn't as popular than it once was.

Agreed. But hanging it straight the first time is no picnic.
