Monday Rant: Residential banquettes

At a nice restaurant, where there is waitstaff to gently pull the table in and out for your comings and goings, wonderful!
In a home, not so much. Even if it is used only for casual family dining, don’t the children have to crawl over each other to get in and out of their place? And, when the built-in back swoop of nailheads or padding and tufting go up sky-high, much higher than the back of the chairs on the other side, it is a look that I just don’t get.
Is it the trendiness of the thing or the dysfunctionality of it, that bothers me? Or, is it because the whole look is more of a commercial look than a traditional table and chair setting? What do you think, do you have an opinion on the home banquette trend?
