When you are shopping for new furniture for your home it is important to think about what the furniture will be used for and just who will be using it. This is especially true when you are planning to buy a bench specifically used for the dining room. Some of your guests may be uncomfortable using a backless bench to eat a meal at. Think about the guests who will be sitting there and ask yourself if you would ask them to eat on a stool. If you would not, then maybe a backless bench will not work either.
But a desk, and a modern dining table for that matter, use a standard chair or stool as its matter of seating. A picnic table and some other outdoor tables use benches in lieu of chairs or stools to seat people. Although common for the outdoors, an indoor table rarely uses a stool for place settings. Can this still be classified as a table? By definition yes, although in today's modern interior having bench seats anywhere in the home would be considered a major decor gamble.
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.
