The reason for this is that bench seats take up quite a bit of space and cannot be easily moved from their static location. If you think about it, how many times have you seen someone take a bench seat from a dining room to the kitchen to add additional space? It's not very likely, although if a room has sufficient room and a seating arrangement that would not change often, there very well could be a use for a dining room table with a bench seat. This is not to say that a bench seat is not useful, but having one in a dining room can severely limit the mobility and space of a room.
Although people are still warming up to their use, it won't take long before they realize how functional and useful they are. Just imagine, instead of buying 6 individual dining seats, you can just invest in 2 dining table benches that can accommodate 6 persons. They would be the perfect choice in homes with constrained spaces, but of course, this will still depend on the length and size of the bench.
If comfort is a concern, consider putting a cushion on your bench. Some companies sell cushions already made or you can custom order them. If you're handy with fabric, you can opt to make a customized cushion yourself. Most fabric stores have poly-foam that you can use for the padding and it is pretty easy to shape.
