Trying to find the most realistic wood tile

We are building a new home and have decided to go with the wood porcelain tile. Does anyone have experience with and can recommend a very realistic looking product? We prefer something darker...not as dark as ebony, but closer to Walnut or somewhere in between.

I love the Porcelenosa line, but only as an admirer so far

I hear the Amtico tile is great. They have lots of color options.

You might look at Daltile. I don't know if they make a wood tile, but we just put down their Atlantic Beach 18X18" porcelain tile and are very happy with it. Home Depot sells it among others.

I was going to use the wood porcelain tile bc of my Great Dane but after thinking about how cold tile is and how hard it is on your feet and joints, I decided to look at Shaw versa lock. It is similar to a laminate wood flooring but it it is waterproof and holds up very well. My aunt has three young children and three very hyper inside dogs and this stuff is indestructible. You can also cut it with a box knife to score it and bend it in half to install yourself. No padding no glue! I installed it at my aunts house and it is very easy. It is only $1.98 a square foot at Home Depot!
