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.
If you use your table a lot for entertaining, you may want to go with a patterned fabric for your indoor bench. This will help cover up some of the smaller stains that may happen during meal time and save you a lot of time keeping the cushion clean. Of course, you can always add some Velcro or a zipper along one seam so that you can clean your cushion cover easily in the washing machine. Just be careful that you don't accidentally dry a material in the dryer that isn't pre-shrunk. Though clean, you may find that your cover suddenly doesn't fit on the foam pad any more.
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.
